ART IN ACTION Thursday 21 – Sunday 24 July 2011

A festival of fine art and master craftsmanship which attracts over 25,000 visitors over 4 days 
each July in the grounds of Waterperry House, Oxfordshire. Over 150 artists demonstrate 
their skills in painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, calligraphy, illustration, 
glass, metalwork, jewellery, nature in art, textiles, woodwork and more. Visitors can also 
experience live music and performing arts from around the world, hear lectures on a variety of 
subjects and learn from the teachers in the hugely popular practical classes. Art in Action 
champions art in all forms and styles so visitors can find everything from traditional crafts to 
cutting edge contemporary arts. Every year, artists are invited to exhibit what they consider 
their best work in the ‘Best of the Best' tent, this is a particularly good place for the visitor to 
start as it gives a comprehensive overview of the scale and quality of the event.
