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.
Our Artweeks Christmas exhibitions will take place on 22nd and 23rd of November when more than a hundred venues across the county will re-open their doors and invite you in for some inspired Christmas shopping! Download the Christmas venues list. (8 MB PDF file)
The main 2014 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 are produced by Artweeks artists.
The 2015 festival will take place from the 2nd to 25th 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 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 be see exhibitions along the Thames from Faringdon to Henley and the Ridgeway from Wantage to Thame. More information will be available here from March 2015.
Established in 1981, Oxfordshire Artweeks is the country’s oldest and biggest open studio event. More information.
