An Oxfordshire Artweeks exhibition in support of the Oxford Canal Heritage Project.

About

Follow Oxford's hidden waterway through art from the community, from children's work to professional artists', in an exhibition ranging from traditional paintings to thought-provoking contemporary installation. Starting in Banbury, the canal to Oxford wanders through Wolvercote and creeps along the back of Jericho terraces, ending quietly at busy Hythe Bridge Street in Oxford centre. Despite being within the hustle and bustle of the ring-road, a stroll along this three mile stretch has the capacity to surprise even those who have spent their lives in the city. It's a secret byway, often undiscovered and unappreciated, a lush and verdant path leading residents and visitors alike into another world - the quiet backwaters of times gone by.
