West Ox Arts' gallery is a gallery run by artists for artists and is a lovely, light filled space on the first floor of Bampton’s Grade II Listed Town Hall in the Market Square, a picturesque Cotswold village about five miles from Witney.
The gallery holds approximately 12 exhibitions a year showing a wide range of contemporary, high quality arts and crafts by local, national and international artists. It has a members' gift shop which, in addition to having browsers containing members’ artwork, also sells reasonably priced handmade items such as jewellery, ceramics, textiles and cards.
West Ox Arts also has access to the Robert Vesey Room in Bampton for smaller exhibitions.
West Ox Arts is a registered charity and has the support of the Bampton Parish Council. As a 'not for profit' organisation, all generated income is reinvested in arts opportunities for all across West Oxfordshire. The gallery is staffed by a part-time curator and administrator and also by a team of volunteers.
A wide range of workshops with friendly expert tutors are held in the gallery throughout the year with discounted rates for members; our workshops and events page shows what's planned for the next few months.
We are currently looking for a new venue got our popular weekly untutored life drawing classes. We hope to be able to start these again soon nearby.
West Ox Arts welcomes to its exhibitions and workshops visitors of all ages and abilities. Please contact the administrator or curator to discuss the suitability of the current exhibition or any workshop or event for any special access needs. Our single-level gallery is on the first floor but can be entered by lift and permanent ramp. Public-use disabled toilet facilities are at ground level in the same building.
