Peace and Quiet Juried Exhibit
We’re proud to present the Peace & Quiet Juried Exhibit! Featuring 19 artists and more than 40 works of art, the exhibition addresses themes of contemplation, meditation, and seeking moments of peace and quiet in troubled times.
Artists within a 50-mile radius of Oxford were invited to submit pieces for consideration; the resulting collection represents a variety of artistic mediums and approaches. Many of the works depict moments of harmony and beauty in nature and everyday life. Other works act as meditative, artistic responses to the tensions of our time. In addition, many artists described incorporating meditative practices into the creative art-making process itself. What unites all of the works in this collection is a feeling of inherent tranquility that inspires calm contemplation among viewers. If you’re looking for peace, quiet, and inspiration, be sure to visit this exhibit before it closes in September.
Nineteenth Amendment History Exhibit
In partnership with the League of Women Voters of Oxford, the OCAC presents the Nineteenth Amendment History Exhibit. The exhibit recognizes the significance of August 26, 2021 as Women's Equality Day and the 101st anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment. The League of Women Voters of Oxford commemorates the American suffrage movement which, after a 72-year political struggle, won the constitutional right to vote for women with the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920.
Pieces in the exhibit include a Votes for Women Commemorative Quilt, founding documents of the women's suffrage movement, and a Voting Rights for Women wall poster from the Smithsonian Museum.
