It’s May (nearly), and that means it’s nearly Oxfordshire Artweeks again. Artweeks is one of the premier regional art festivals, and takes place all over Oxfordshire in 3 stages: North Oxfordshire, Oxford City, and South Oxfordshire. There is every type of art on show and it’s all free to attend.
I’m exhibiting my Fine Art photography as part of Artweeks in three places over three different time periods. The first is a single piece as part of Didcot’s shiny new Cornerstone Gallery’s DRAW:SHOW exhibition. This curated exhibition is taking place from 5th May to the 21st June. They say: “This year the gallery will be filled work submitted by artists from across the region as we celebrate the practice and explore the concept of drawing.” Cool to get a photograph accepted in a drawing exhibition…
Next, I’m part of Artweeks venue 199 in Oxford Library: “Looking West – Faringdon area artists come to Oxford”, (even though my name is not listed on the webpage!). It’s on from the 4th to the 25th of May. This is a taster exhibition for the main “Vale Artists” show in Faringdon. Again I have one piece, and it’s a nicely ambiguous work where the sense of scale is obscured.
The main exhibition is Artweeks venue 342 in The Rookery in Faringdon from the 15th to the 25th of May. Please note: the gallery is not open Sundays, and the Artweeks venue 342 webpage dates are wrong. I’ll have at least 6 works including some of my large “Invisible Beauty” images. These highly abstract, but unmanipulated, photographs look like paintings with their swirling patterns of deep colour.
Some of the days I’ll be at the Rookery so we can chat about photography (or the weather). Hope to see you there! If you go and I’m not there, and you would like to talk about my work, do please get in touch by phone or e-mail.
