Oxheys Mill Studios in Preston has announced plans for a program of events around their annual Winter exhibition which opens on 20th November from 6-8pm. Past winter exhibitions at Oxheys have been well attended and always popular as artists offer varying interpretations on the theme of winter in a wide and diverse range of art forms. This year, instead of an open exhibition, the work is from resident artists, several of whom have joined in the past year and not previously exhibited there. There is also work from some invited artists who have supported the venture since it was founded 3 years ago. Continue reading
Join us at Oxheys Mill Studios for an Open Day this Saturday 14th June, for an opportunity to see a fabulous new installation by international artist Lubaina Himid MBE. Professor of Contemporary Art at UCLAN in Preston. This will be the only opportunity to see this installation before it gets shipped off to Guanjiu in South Korea for the Art Biennale so don’t miss this opportunity to see and explore the installation. Lubaina will be around all day to answer questions and talk about the work.
If you haven’t been to Oxheys before, the Open Day is also a chance to have a look around, talk with some resident artists and see the Project Space.
The Open Day is on from 11am to 4pm. All welcome.
Please note, if the loading bay is not open please ring the doorbell for disabled access.

Celebrating 3 years since moving in to the former ARM factory on Stanhope Street, artist-run Oxheys Mill Studios was started by three local artists as a collective, with the belief that empty industrial spaces could be made accessible for art and the aim of providing a space in Preston where local artists could experiment and exhibit work alongside the studios. To date 25 very different exhibitions have been organised and hosted along with other events and activities including music, live theatre, performance and poetry readings, creative writing, life drawing and photography workshops.
Part of the Distinguished Visitor Programme Public Lecture Series, George Hallett: Photographer is a free talk but to book a places visit https://georgehallett-uclan.eventbrite.co.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org

We have had a fantastic response for this year’s exhibition, with over a hundred entries! The responses to the Protest theme have been intriguing, ensuring we’ll have a thought-provoking exhibition. The standard of work has been very high, making the selection process more difficult but we have now made the final selection and are really excited with the results. We start the install tomorrow – don’t miss the private view this Thursday 6-8pm and then the performance art event at Korova Arts Cafe in Preston on Saturday from 3pm.
