"We think events like this are a good way to bring people together and show that there is still a thriving business community here."
Ten artists from Royston and the surrounding villages are taking part in the Open Studios, which start on September 8 and run until September 30.
The group will also have a stall in Royston market on Saturday, September 1.
Mrs Hartga said: "The Open Studios are very popular, but Royston is often a forgotten part of the county.
"We hope to raise the profile of the town and make people realise there is a lot to see here."
The business meets art evening will run from 5.30-7.30pm.
