The Oxfordshire Museum to host art society’s annual selling exhibition

Members of The Oxford Art Society will exhibit their work at The Oxfordshire Museum in Woodstock next month.

The society’s annual selling exhibition from April 6-28 will showcase paintings, sculpture and printmaking of the highest quality by artists in Oxfordshire, many of whom exhibit nationally and internationally.

The Oxford Art Society was formed in 1891 at the instigation of Walter Tyrwhitt, who remarked on the need for a society to encourage art in the city and in the university.

Each year since 1972 the Society has held an exhibition for members’ work in addition to the annual open exhibition.

Non-members are encouraged to submit work to the annual open exhibition for selection on the same basis as the selection of works by members of the Society. It is from these exhibitions that new members are invited to join.

The Oxfordshire Museum is run by Oxfordshire County Council and forms part of our rich cultural service, supporting our commitment to thriving communities. We provide services that enhance the quality of life in our communities and protect the local environment.

Admission to The Oxford Art Society exhibition is free. The Oxfordshire Museum is located at Fletcher’s House, Park Street, Woodstock OX20 1SN Map directions

Museum opening times: Tuesdays to Saturdays, 10am to 5pm. Sundays, 2-5pm. Last admission at weekends is at 4.45pm.
