Oxfordshire Artweeks is the UK’s biggest FREE artist open studios and pop-up exhibition event with amazing art in hundreds of wonderful places across the county throughout May. During the festival you can feast your eyes on a huge range of creative activity, from painting, photography, textiles, sculpture and ceramics, to furniture, glass, mosaics, jewellery and much more. You’ll be able to meet artists in a wide range of interesting places, talk about their work, watch demonstrations and have a go yourself.
Visiting our galleries offers you a sample of the vibrant art and design on show, and also gives you details of Artweeks artists' Christmas events in November and December. To keep up to date with Artweeks news all year round you can sign up for our newsletter which has a monthly summary of some of the art on offer across the county.
In 2020, during the first week of the May festival (2nd-10th May) 200 venues along the Thames from Faringdon to Henley and the Ridgeway from Wantage to Thame welcome you in. The second week (9th-17th May) takes place in 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, and during the third week (16th-25th May) you can visit dozens of art spaces in the city of Oxford. Be inspired, entertained and delighted – and even choose a treasure to take home with you.
