artweeks

I really like the Oxford Artweeks which is when hundreds of artists (professional and amateur alike) display there work either in their own homes or in public buildings like schools and churches. The events are already running in the county this week, and will hit the city next Saturday 17th, so I can have a nice walkabout and see some art I wouldn't otherwise be able to see.

What troubles me a little bit, though, is that the artists seem to have vanished from our neighbourhood. Back in 2000/01 there were 2 or 3 exhibitions in our street, and a few more in nearby streets, and now there is nothing. I have to go to the city centre or to North Oxford to get my art fix. Not sure what happened there ...
