An Evening with the Arts: Virtual Gala

Please join the Oxford Arts Alliance and our local artistic community for an evening of the arts...from your home on Friday, October 23rd, 6-9 pm! We’ve created a beautiful 3D version of our galleries at 38 S Third Street and worked alongside artists Dave Eldreth and Tyler Allen to create a stunning exhibition for your enjoyment. We at the Oxford Arts Alliance want everyone to feel at home in supporting the arts. That’s why, for 2020, we’ve decided that this event is “Pay What You Want.” Any donation made to us through here will give the donor access to the event. Find more information about An Evening with the Arts here!

#StandWithPresence ART CHALLENGE!

In times of uncertainty, ART is a powerful force for building communities and inspiring inner strength. To show our community's spirit, The Oxford Art Alliance and artist Vicki Vinton invite you to join us in an Art Challenge! Our goal is to gather 1,000 photos! We will combine them into a gigantic 6-foot-tall mosaic of Presence, and when we can safely gather again, we will display it for you, your family, and friends to see! Visit this page for more information on how YOU can participate!

AVAILABLE NOW: Virtual Art Exhibitions

Due to social distancing and our "new normal" the Oxford Arts Alliance is bringing art exhibitions to you on our website through a virtual flipbook! We will have in-person exhibitions starting in August along with a virtual exhibition for each in-person exhibition.

AVAILABLE NOW: Virtual Art Camp

The Oxford Arts Alliance is bringing an art camp to you through the comfort of your home. The COVID-19 crisis has made us all a little stir crazy, so sit back and relax while your kids engage in educational, hands-on art activities to keep them busy for days. Don’t let social distancing deprive your kids of experiencing exciting art enrichment through our online camp program! Our curriculum is designed for 6-10 years old, but campers of any age are welcome to join in on the fun. Purchase our Virtual Art Camp online: Click here!

Scholarships

In the shadow of COVID-19, a growing number of our academy students and their families are finding themselves in a difficult financial situation due to so many workers being furloughed or out of work. Through the study of art and music, we can create healthy, thought-provoking, and expressive avenues in our diversifying community.  Unfortunately, access to musical education in Oxford, PA is difficult to afford for many families. As the arts and culture leader in Oxford, we want to provide students with the opportunity to further their artistic or musical education regardless of their ability to pay.
