PAINTERS, ceramic artists, photographers and jewellery makers from across the area are showcasing work and designs at an Oxford church as part of Oxfordshire Artweeks.  

Held in the Victorian cloisters of St John the Evangelist Church on Iffley Road, members of the public will have the opportunity to view designs and work from artists from a number of disciplines.

The Grade II listed building houses exhibitions from 18 artists – including work from the county’s own Caroline Harben, (painting pictured), until May 20.

The exhibition, part of Oxfordshire Artweeks, began on Saturday and will be open daily at the church from 12pm until 6pm and later on Thursdays, closing at 8.30pm.

Roughly 500 other venues will also swing their doors open during the month to welcome more than 100,000 art lovers at venues ranging from private studios to pop-ups at public spaces.

The festival will host artists from most forms of art and craft including furniture, glass work, mosaic artists and sculptures and offers an opportunity to meet and talk to the artists.

Entry to all the Oxfordshire Artweeks venues is free, for more information visit
