The Art Shop

The Art Shop at the Oxford Community Art Center is a cooperative of nine local artists.  Founded in 2009, we are celebrating our 10-year anniversary.  Since its founding, the Art Shop has become the go-to place to find unique and beautiful art and crafts by local artists.

The Tale of the Artful Dodger, by Jim Horton

The Artful Dodger, better known as Jim Horton, has reason to be excited about painting, for he enjoys sharing the beauty and the fun that surround us.  His artistic eye finds character in objects that, at one time, would never have caught his interest; and subjects for his artwork now run the gamut from Nature’s beauty to antiques and matters of historical note.  On an occasional whim, Jim creates a clash of realities, sure to bring a smile to the face of everyday people who expect the normal but recognize an imaginative twist.
