Pittenweem Arts Festival

A celebration of the visual arts; taking place in galleries, homes, studios and venues throughout Pittenweem

August 1st-8th 2020: CANCELLED

2020 Festival Cancelled

Thursday March 19th 2020

As you know the coronavirus is of huge concern affecting all social gatherings and events as the health and safety of us all is of paramount importance. 


Today, with many more events and gatherings cancelled nationally we regretfully have to tell you that this includes Pittenweem Arts Festival and the Easter Weekend open venues.


After recognising that we would have to cancel the Festival, we decided to leave the website largely unchanged. We had up the work of roughly half the artists who would have been exhibiting in 2020 and felt that, along with giving you an idea of who exhibits at the Festival,  it would be useful publicity for those artists.


Most of the artists who signed up for 2020 intend to come in 2021 and our three Invited Artists for 2020 have arranged to take part in 2021. Even though the  2020 Festival is cancelled, you can see what might have been.

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: 


Janette Kerr     Angus Ross

Fife Dunfermline Printmakers



These can take a bit longer to get organised but we have a fair number lined up. There’s a summary of what’s taking place on the Events page.

Events & Workshops 

Galleries

When you’re in Pittenweem for the Festival, it’s easy to recognise that this is an artistic community. 


What is not so easily noticeable is that there are about 30 artists resident in the village. Coupled with this is the very healthy number of galleries, Pittenweem sustains its artistic reputation through the galleries which, after the festival throngs have gone, remain open all year round. 

ART@47

Our office space is also a dedicated exhibition space. Click on this panel to find out more about current exhibitions, what we have previously shown and how you can use ART@47.
