Venues across Banburyshire will be filled with a variety of art created by local talents as part of Oxfordshire Artweeks.
About 1,000 artists and designer-makers are now gearing up for more than 400 exhibitions and events across the county in May for the longest-running and biggest ‘open studios’ event in the UK.
On the north Oxfordshire side, painters, photographers, potters, sculptors, silversmiths and textile artists will be showcasing their work at 30 venues in and around Banbury from May 10-18.
And with colourful stained glass art for the garden in Deddington and Burdrop, animal sculptures crafted from sheet metal in Bodicote and heaven and hell in the world of ballet through the eyes of painter Gilbert Csecs at Banbury’s Tramway, there will be plenty to delight and inspire the crowds.
Visitors will also be able to wander through the streets of Banbury Old Town and follow an art trail to find local art, visit The Mill Arts Centre for its Banburyscapes exhibiton, admire work by Chenderit School students at Hamptons International and much more.
