Come and join us on our stall at Harpenden's Summer Carnival this weekend where we will be running a children's colouring competition - entrants will be able to win a prize, which will then be announced on our Frost's Facebook page - you will be able to find our stand by looking out for our branded helium balloons. The carnival is running over two days Sat June 11th & Sun 12th June 2016 from 10.00 - 17.00 on Harpenden Common, close to Harpenden Town centre. We look forward to seeing you over the weekend.

The Harpenden Summer Carnival also coincides with Art on the common, (AOTC) which is a 2 day event on Harpenden common showcasing the work of local artists. There will be a wide range of works on offer including paintings, ceramics, fine art photography, sculpture, jewellery, glass, wood and the more affordable handmade greeting cards.

One of the benefits of owning an original piece of art, are the feelings that it can evoke. Happiness is one of the most obvious sentiments that your painting, photo or sculpture can provide and then there is the excitement of searching for and deciding upon your very one piece of art. A key benefit of owning original art is the aesthetic quality it brings to your home. Having a piece of hanging art or sculpture can really enhance a room something to really consideration when thinking of buying art. A painting or sculpture that completes your interior design can lift the mood of the room and everyone in it. It can provide a real focal to a room and become a talking point almost every time someone new sees it.
 
Many people will appreciate the quality of an original art piece and the impression that it gives is one of individuality of the owner. There are many benefits to owning original art but perhaps the most important one is simply for the love of it. Original works of art can give many years of pleasure to the lucky new owner.  http://www.artonthecommon.co.uk/
