Oxfordshire Artweeks is the UK’s oldest and biggest artist open studios & pop-up exhibition event and we are delighted to be celebrating our 40th anniversary this year.
From 7th-29th May you can feast your eyes on a huge range of creative activity by hundreds of artists, makers and designers in artists' studios, pop-up galleries, glorious gardens, ancient churches, medieval tithe barns and hundreds of other amazing venues.
Enjoy artists' painting, photography, textiles, sculpture and ceramics; be amazed by woodworking, glass art, mosaics and jewellery and be intrigued by contemporary installations and multidisciplinary work. Oxfordshire Artweeks is a chance to talk to artists and creatives about their work, watch demonstrations and even have a go yourself. Be inspired, entertained and delighted: browse, and even choose a treasure to take home with you.
In the first week of the 2022 festival, 7th-15th venues open across Oxford; in the second week, 14th-22nd, you can explore South Oxfordshire venues and in the third week, 21st-29th, venues in North Oxfordshire welcome you in. All venues are drop-in, free to visit and have committed to be Covid-secure.
Opening hours are generally 11am-6pm: they vary however, so please check the times for individual venues before travelling.
You will be able to see more details on 2022 participants and venues shortly.
In the meantime, you can still see details of all those who took part in 2021 here.
All year round browse workshops run by Artweeks artists to have a go yourself and keep checking in to enjoy a continually-changing selection of fresh art every day or follow us on Instagram or Facebook.
In November and December, many Artweeks artists also host or take part in Christmas events.
