About Us

Artists of Oxford (AO) is an organization that was established in 2007 to foster the development of visual arts in Oxford County and to promote and encourage art appreciation. The group is a support network for professional artists in the region bringing together people of all levels of artistic achievement.

It is our vision that Oxford shall be a community where art is embraced and artists and art organizations are supported and recognized as vital and central to the creative life of the County. AO is a leading advocate for the Visual Arts, promoting activities to increase the appreciation, enjoyment and use of art and works of art by the community.

AO provides an environment in which artists develop their skills, meet to share ideas and enjoy mutual support and encouragement in meeting common goals. It serves as a forum to discuss upcoming shows, share expertise, equipment and resources.

We are dedicated to further the awareness, appreciation and support of the arts by a diverse audience by hosting two to three shows each year in which our artists exhibit their work through professionally juried and non-juried environments.

  1. Hello My name is Danielle. I came from Edmonton, AB. I miss a lot of the festivals that were put on in Edmonton. One of my absolute most favorite festivals is the Kaleido Family Art Festival. I was hoping to somehow get a bunch of people. artists, venues, businesses, etc, involved in bringing this beautiful celebration of art to Woodstock. I would love to be a part of organizing this and getting people in on it as well. It takes an entire art community. But it’s a beautiful way of bringing together all the cultures that live within the community. A great way to see what talents people have here and brings new talents and interests to light. It also attracts other artists to town too. Thanks for listening. 🙂

    • Hi Danielle,
      Perhaps you would like to attend Oxford Creative Connections Inc.’s new festival this year, the Halls Creek Festival of Creativity. It’s on September 12th and 13th, 2015, in Ingersoll. We are going to post about it shortly. I am not sure if it will match up to what you are thinking of, but perhaps it will come close and if not, you could be a source of suggestions to the organizers! Thanks for your comment,
      Lianne Todd, AO
