ARt Galleries In Oxford
Whether you like to view art that’s firmly contemporary
or long to catch a glimpse of some old masters, there’s
plenty of art galleries in Oxford offering a very
eclectic range of paintings, arts and crafts.
The Christ Church Gallery [map] is housed in
one of Oxford’s most famous colleges. Here you can
see a large collection of art including paintings by Lippi,
Van Dyck and Tintoretto as well as sketchings by Da Vinci,
Durer, and Verrocchio.
Get right up to date by visiting The Museum of Modern
Art [map], which offers visitors the chance to
see the best of 20th century art including visiting exhibitions, photography, sculpture, ceramics and textiles. You can take a guided tour to
get the best out of your day at this gallery or meander
around at your own pace.
If you would like to purchase a special piece of art there’s
several independent galleries dotted around the
town centre. One that stands out is the Inspires Art
Gallery [map] on Little Clarendon Street, which
is a relaxed and unpretentious gallery offering art to
purchase as well as framing services. Artists showing
their work here include Barbara Brody, Heidi Konig, and
Bruce McClean as well as a great number of others drawn
from Europe, South Africa and America.
In fact you don’t even have to visit a gallery to
enjoy some of Oxford’s brightest talent as Oxfordshire
Artweeks [map] invites you into the very homes of contemporary artists
to see them at work and get a greater idea about what
makes them tick. It’s the biggest event of its
kind in Europe and well worth attending.
