For me Oxfordshire artweek ended up being Oxfordshire art month. My wonderful wife spent the whole of April working hard on the garden to transform it into a fabulous outdoor gallery. We decided early on that it would be impossible to display my work in our house, due to the lack of suitable wall space and the large number of over size pieces of work. The only real option we had was to display the work by hanging them in and around the garden. An out door art event in May left us in the hands of the weather Gods. With that in mind we choose to open the whole of the duration of the Artweek Festival, rather than the last ten days which we should have been open for. We advertised that we would only be open on dry days, thankfully we only had to close on a handful of days.
