Oxfordshire Artweeks

From 4th-27th May, over a thousand artists, makers and designers exhibited in artists' studios, pop-up galleries, glorious gardens, ancient churches, Oxford Colleges and hundreds of other interesting venues. Visitors could simply drop-in and explore for free.

It was a chance to chat about painting, photography, textiles, sculpture and ceramics; discover woodworking, glass art, mosaics and jewellery, and be intrigued by contemporary installations and multidisciplinary practice. Visitors were inspired, entertained and surprised, and many chose a treasure to take home with them!

Next year, the festival will run from 3rd-26th May 2025. Each week of the festival is different
Oxford city: 3rd-11th May
South Oxfordshire: 10th-18th May
North and West Oxfordshire: 17th-26th May

You will be able to see full details of all the 2025 venues here, and explore by artist, media, location and more in February 2025.
Alternatively you will be able to browse our on-line Spring Show, themed art trails, or hundreds of artist portfolios in our Art Showcase to help you choose.
Opening hours are generally 11am-6pm. (However please confirm times for individual venues before travelling as there may be slight amendments to those advertised in the festival guide).
