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 next Artweeks Festival will take place from the 7th to 30th May 2016. For three weeks, you will be able to visit open studios in towns and venues across Oxfordshire for free. The first week will take place in Oxford itself as 200 art spaces across the city welcome you in. The second will focus on exhibitions along the Thames from Faringdon to Henley and the Ridgeway from Wantage to Thame, and in the third week, visit 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.
Visiting our galleries will give you a sample of the vibrant works that are produced by all our Artweeks artists, and you can contact them throughout the year if you see a piece in which you are interested.
Established in 1981, Oxfordshire Artweeks is the country’s oldest and biggest open studio event. More information.
