Oxfordshire 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.
The 2015 festival will take place from the 2nd to 25th May. For three weeks, you will be able to visit open studios and exhibitions in towns and venues across Oxfordshire for free. The first week of Artweeks 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 second is centred on Oxford itself, where nearly 200 art spaces in and around the city open their doors to the public, and the third week will see exhibitions along the Thames from Faringdon to Henley and the Ridgeway from Wantage to Thame.
Search our exhibition listings, explore the festival map, and browse the 2015 galleries to see a sample of the vibrant works that are produced by Artweeks artists. The festival guide will be available to download in March.
Our Artweeks Christmas exhibitions will take place on 14th and 15th of November though many Artweeks artists open their doors at other times in the run up to Christmas as the county’s artists invite you in once again for some inspired Christmas shopping!
