Oxfordshire Arts Weeks

(I have had a few gremlins in recent days and twice have switched traffic to the mirror site abingdonblog.net. I’m asking the company hosting this blog to check out what could be wrong and should hopefully soon get a solution.)
Oxfordshire Arts Weeks
This is the week when the Oxfordshire Arts Weeks moves focus from Oxford to the South of Oxfordshire including Abingdon. The nearest exhibition to the town centre is at St Ethelwold’s House where The East St Helen’s Group are exhibiting.

The house and garden make a lovely setting apart from the artwork.

Down the bottom of the garden Emma Cavell has a studio and creates Contemporary Mosaics from broken pieces of pottery. She also teaches from this very relaxed setting, and at Sunningwell School of Art.

    Customer came in this morning having visited the Art Weeks Exhibition at St Ethelwold’s and was really impressed. She comes to Oxfordshire every year to spend time with friends and visit some of the Art Weeks exhibitions…

    I hope you don’t mind me getting in touch, I wanted to let you know about a show we’re doing which might be of interest to you. On Sunday 29th July we’ll be having a special performance of our summer show The Merchant of Venice which we’re calling the Ideas Aloud show. We’re really hoping that people in the audience will create something in response to the show, anything from a photo to a poem and we’re allowing photography, sketching and painting during the performance – we’re pretty open to other requests too, for example if people want the cast to come on stage during the interval for close ups, or access to the costumes.

    The show is performed at The Said Business School in the centre of Oxford (next to the train station if it doesn’t ring a bell), and we’ll be arranging an exhibition after the show to display everything that we receive from the audience. Because it’s a special event show all tickets are £20 and the show starts at 6pm. More information is on our website: http://www.creationtheatre.co.uk/show-one/tickets#ideas

    Best wishes,


    Charlotte Morley
    Group Bookings Officer
