One of the early casualties of last year’s lockdown was the county wide Artweeks events. Usually taking place in May, the events reverted to online shows.
This year the 2021 Artweeks are back in person. In South Oxfordshire, from 15-23 May, the events offer the chance to meet artists, view and buy their works.
Some artists exhibit individually from their houses or studios, others join together in village halls. Here are some of those exhibiting in and around Didcot this week:
