Our Winter exhibition is always popular and a good excuse for a pre-Christmas party with opportunities to buy artist-made cards and small gifts at affordable prices. We hope you will join us again this year. For the first time it is not an ‘open’ exhibition but one featuring work by resident artists, along with a few invited artists whose work we like and who have shown us great support. Alongside the exhibition will be a good selection of ceramics, prints and craft items along with a unique selection of hand-made cards. For a truly different experience, come and do your Christmas shopping at Oxheys this year!
The Winter show opens on Thursday November 20th with a Private View from 6-8pm, refreshments available. Do come along and please tell your friends. The show is then open Fridays and Saturdays from 12-3pm until December 20th with a series of workshops running each Saturday with activities from drawing to cracker making, textiles to ceramics, photography to festive box-making.

Join us for this Open Day on 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. Lubaina joined Oxheys recently on a short-term basis as a resident artist in order to work on this installation in our Project Space.
Over the past two weeks she has been busy painting and planning and has now completed the installation – it looks fabulous in the industrial setting of the mill.
This will be the only opportunity to see this installation before it gets shipped off to Guanjiu in South Korea for their 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.
