Several VAS members will be participating in this years festival including Robert Cairns, Craig Mitchell, Jenny Pope and Jennifer Pettigrew.
A picturesque fishing village, with narrow wynds running down to the working harbour, Pittenweem’s unique atmosphere has attracted many artists over the years. The Arts Festival, which is in its 27th year, always starts on the first saturday in August and ends on the second Sunday. The Festival hosts both well established artists and newcomers. Some of the past invited artists are mentioned in the archive. There are over 100 artists exhibiting in the village in houses, garages, studios, gardens and anywhere that has wall space. There is also the Open Art Exhibition to view. These exhibitions, including the invited artists, are all free to visitors to the Pittenweem Arts Festival.
