GO ARt Galleries In Oxford

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.
