As Oxfordshire Artweeks bursts into life across the county this month, we have a selection of unexpected pieces which will be on show during the festival.
There’s so much more than paintings, photography, ceramics and sculpture. On these pages, you’ll see bellows and a boat, an invented animal and a cast of Star Wars characters. These illustrate just some of the surprises, talent and intrigue you can investigate in artists’ open studios and pop-up exhibitions across the county this month. Browse more on-line and choose which venues to visit at artweeks.org.
