Art Shop





Wednesday, Thursdays & Saturdays: 11 am - 2 pm
Fridays: 11 am - 6 pm

The Art Shop is a collective of individual, local artists who share gallery space and share the responsibilities of retail operations. As a cooperative gallery, Art Shop runs entirely on the volunteer efforts of our artist members. Like us on FACEBOOK!

Art Shop sales are subject to a 20% commission, donated to the Oxford Community Arts Center.

When buying from an artist, you are buying more than an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks, and months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You aren't just buying a thing. You are buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a moment of someone's life. - Author Unknown
