Oxheys Winter exhibition – Private View

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.
