Oxfordshire Artweeks

Come and visit friendly open studios and diverse pop-up exhibitions in towns and venues across Oxfordshire, for free, from 5th-28th May.

During the first week of the festival (5th-13th May) visit beautiful North and West 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, and in the second (12th-20th May), 200 art spaces across the city of Oxford itself welcome you in. The third week (19th-28th May) takes place in South Oxfordshire with venues along the Thames from Faringdon to Henley and the Ridgeway from Wantage to Thame. You can download the festival guide here.

Artweeks is the opportunity to see amazing art in wonderful places: 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 interesting places, 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. Visiting our galleries will give you a sample of the vibrant art and design on show.

Oxfordshire Artweeks is a not-for-profit artists' organisation that promotes the work of Oxfordshire artists through a giant county-wide Festival each May and a select season of Christmas events in November and December to give you the chance to choose unique gifts for your own home and garden or the festive season. Established in 1981, Oxfordshire Artweeks is the country’s oldest and biggest open studio event. More information.
