The main 2013 Oxfordshire Artweeks festival took place over three weeks in May earlier this year, and more than 100,000 people enjoyed the amazing array of locally-produced original art that was exhibited across the towns and villages of Oxfordshire. Visiting our galleries will give you a sample of the vibrant works that were available to view and buy.
We are delighted to announce that this year we are launching a weekend of Artweeks Christmas exhibitions.
One hundred and twenty-five venues across the county will re-open their doors on 23rd and 24th of November and invite you in for some inspired Christmas shopping! Download the Christmas venues list .
The 2014 festival will take place from the 3rd to 26th May. For three weeks, you will be able to visit open studios in towns and venues across Oxfordshire for free. The first week of Artweeks will take place across the south of the county, with exhibitions along the Thames from Faringdon to Henley and the Ridgeway from Wantage to Thame. The second week will focus on beautiful North Oxfordshire where venues can be found nestled from Burford and Chipping Norton in the Cotswolds across to the historic market towns of Bicester and Banbury. The last week is centred on Oxford itself, where nearly 200 art spaces in and around the city open their doors to the public. More information will be available here from March 2014.
Artweeks is the opportunity for a wonderful day out: expect the unexpected, be inspired, diverted and delighted – and come home with a unique artwork of your own. You’ll be able to meet artists in a wide range of amazing venues, talk about their work, watch demonstrations and maybe have a go yourself. Or simply feast your eyes on a huge range of creative activity, from painting, photography, textiles, sculpture and ceramics, to furniture, glass, mosaics, jewellery, digital art and much more. Established in 1981, Oxfordshire Artweeks is the country’s oldest and biggest open studio event. More information.
