The Oxfordshire Artweeks festival guide is now rolling through the printing presses packed with information about nearly 500 exhibitions taking place during March (4th-27th May). You will be able to collect one at local information points from early April and you can already browse the website by location, artist or media here.
We're knee deep in snow here, but the thought of spring around the corner is cheering, and what better way to look ahead than browsing the 2019 Oxfordshire Artweeks festival guide? It's now available as a pdf to download below.
Printed copies will be available at libraries and information points from the end of March.
Preparations for this May’s Oxfordshire Artweeks are taking shape and we are delighted to announce the cover image for the 2019 Festival Guide, an etching of Llyn Ladaw or Shining Waters, a natural lake in Snowdonia, by print-maker Morna Rhys. Morna’s etchings are inspired by the wonderful British landscape: wild places, deep valleys, secret paths, seas in many moods or trees in all their glory as sunlight and moonshine add mystery and wonder.
Evocative paintings that convey a sense of silence win Artweeks award for Summertown artist Claire Christie Sadler
Oxfordshire Artweeks are delighted to announce that Summertown artist Claire Christie Sadler is the winner of the 2018 Mary Moser prize for her monochrome drawings of the west coast of Scotland. The award was established in 2003 to mark the work of a local artist who has taken up art as a second career later in life.
Around 1000 artists and designer-makers - including two hundred new faces with fresh ideas - are preparing to hold their biggest ever festival this spring (4th-27th May).
