Oxfordshire Artweeks

Come and visit friendly open studios and diverse pop-up Christmas events in towns and venues across Oxfordshire, for free, throughout November and December 2018.

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.

In 2019, during the first week of the May festival (4th-12th May) 200 art spaces across the city of Oxford welcome you in. The second week (11th-19th May) takes place in South Oxfordshire with venues along the Thames from Faringdon to Henley and the Ridgeway from Wantage to Thame, and during the third (18th-27th May) you can 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. Information on the 2019 festival will beavailable here in Spring 2019. 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.
