Visitors were up by 60 per cent over the previous year with one of them, Adrian Foster, of Harpenden, commenting: “Congratulations! Another brilliant exhibition – they keep getting better. It is really good to see so many new artists.”

Arts club chairman, Roy Bentley, commented: “It is a huge team effort to pull such a large exhibition as this together – we had around 260 artworks on display, as well as more than a hundred in the browsers and an exceptional range of artists’ greetings cards.

“I thought the diversity of styles and quality of artwork was astounding. We have many very talented artists here, and I am glad that all the visitors enjoyed seeing their artwork so much.”

Harpenden Arts Club runs a weekly programme of artist demonstrations, life drawing sessions and art technique workshops from 7.30pm to 9.30pm most Thursday evenings in Harpenden Public Halls. Taster sessions are £3 and new members ares welcome.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
