‍Open Art

‍Early on in the Festival’s development we realised that there were many artists who wished to show at the Festival but couldn’t.  Maybe they were without a venue or they did not yet have enough material for a full exhibition. 

‍To allow these artists some exposure, we began the Open Art Exhibition which means artists can submit individual pieces. This helps out and has proved to be a very successful venture.

Bursary Award

‍Our highly -successful scheme to promote beginning artists and provide them with an unequalled opportunity to exhibit, goes from strength to strength. We provide a venue for the exhibition and  a sizeable cash sum to cover all costs.

‍With this kind of support and the recognition of the award, beginning artists have  the opportunity to exhibit their work and because it’s Pittenweem with the large number of visitors, they have a chance to meet with prospective buyers and promote their art.

Invited Artists

Our yearly invitation to several internationally known and respected artists has resulted in acclaimed and innovatory shows. 

Our Invited Artists leave the art circuit to mount and curate the show themselves. They have a free hand to select and display  work they have chosen or created specially for Pittenweem.

This results in comments from Graham Rich naming his 2017 show as his best and Glen Onwin in 2018 saying: a fairly complex install as I expected but I have enjoyed it greatly.

This year we are excited to have:
