Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot is celebrating Oxfordshire Artweeks 40th anniversary by hosting an exciting exhibition by two local artists.

The ‘Inspired By Nature’ exhibition, which is now on and will run until 01 June, features works by Denny Webb and Charlie Davies.

The exhibition includes a diverse selection of paintings celebrating the local landscape, nature, and the concept of bringing the outdoors inside.

Through their work, the artists hope to encourage visitors to enjoy the beauty of nature and their surroundings.

Councillor Maggie Filipova-Rivers, Cabinet member for Community Wellbeing at South Oxfordshire District Council, which runs Cornerstone Arts Centre, said: “We’re excited to feature these fantastic local artists as part of Oxfordshire Artweeks.

“Do come on down and see this lovely exhibition focusing on nature. Our new summer art classes will also provide residents with the opportunity to try new things and perhaps even become the next budding Oxfordshire artists.”

Cornerstone is also hosting art classes for adults, including ‘Learn To Draw’, ‘Printmaking’ and ‘Life Drawing’ this Summer.

These classes aim to be fun and friendly introductions to the skills and techniques needed to build confidence and artistic abilities.

The classes are weekly, but residents can sign up at any point during the season. A free taster session is available too.

Details of the classes and how to join in are on the Conerstone website at cornerstone-arts.org.

Visitors can see the Oxfordshire Artweeks 40th Anniversary exhibition ‘Inspired By Nature’ in Cornerstone Arts Centre’s gallery from 03 May to 01 June for free during their regular opening hours.

Cornerstone is also hosting a private viewing of the exhibition with the artists at 7.00pm on 10 May for visitors who would like a closer look and a conversation with the artists involved.
