JCP Estate Agents Proud to Support Oxfordshire Artweeks
Oxford is renowned for its cultural, artistic and literary heritage. In the wake of Oxford Literary Festival, we now move on to the next cultural social event of the season which is Oxfordshire Artweeks.
Taking place in Oxford City from 20th-29th May, Artweeks is an opportunity for artists and crafts people to exhibit their work to the general public. Offering a vast variety of artistry and media, including painting, photography, textiles, sculptures, ceramics, furniture, glass, mosaics, jewellery and more, it is the perfect opportunity to see the artists in their avocation. Across the city you will see our boards up with ‘Artist in Residence’, which is where the artists and their exhibits will be located. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet the artists, discuss their work and potentially have the chance to have a go yourself! Entry to all of the exhibitions is free.
Additionally, there will be an Artweeks Jericho Lecture; The Role of the Artist in a Dramatically Changing World at 7:30 p.m. on 10th May 2017. While you are there, why not pop by our office to see the team and check out our properties?
If you are into your art, then you have to view Modern Art Oxford. It offers many tantalising pieces, in particular the current exhibition featuring works by Lubaina Himid. In comparison places such as Christ Church Picture Gallery, one of the lesser known galleries, features works by Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael and Rubens; it is surprising it is not more famous. Not forgetting the renowned Ashmolean Museum, in particular the current exhibition ‘Degas to Picasso’, where tickets are only £10 per person.
One of our vendors stated ‘Oxford’s cultural events are just one of the many highlights of living in this city, such variety is rare to find!’
