Virtual Art Exhibitions
Due to social distancing and our "new normal" the Oxford Arts Alliance is bringing art exhibitions to you online! Both the Main Gallery and the Emerging Artist Gallery exhibitions will be available to view on our website in a virtual FlipFolio and through our 3D gallery space on ArtSteps. We will have in-person exhibitions starting in April 2021 along with a virtual exhibition for each in-person exhibition until further notice.

Academy Policy Changes
Starting in 2021, students will receive an invoice in their email on the 1st day of each month for that month’s tuition. Please download our policies if you are part of our music and art academy. Refer to your emails for updates, invoices, and reminders. Add our emails to your contacts so our emails do not get sent to spam or your promotions folder.
ZyMa Duet Concert
Challenging the role of artists in the community, the ZyMa Duet interactive concert is an experience where the audience can discover what a performance can be. We create meaningful connections with all kinds of audiences while learning and exploring musical concepts. Come join us to learn about Melody vs. Harmony while engaging in activities and enjoying beautiful music from Latin America.

2021 Summer Camps
The Oxford Arts Alliance will have art camps at the Octoraro Art Association in 2021 to safely accommodate summer camps during the COVID-19 pandemic. All summer camps are for ages 7+ and will be held from July 12th-Aug 6th. They are half day art camps this year with a morning session from 9 am-12 pm and an afternoon session 1 pm-4 pm. Your camper will participate in a week or two of 3 hour half day camps, whether it is plein air painting or muddy clay-making! You can find more information for our plein air art camps here and our clay camps here. We're looking forward to our first year with the ability to take our campers outside! It's one of the best features of clay camp that we're excited to introduce to all campers!
We've renamed our Emerge Scholarship Fund to The Larry F. Thompson Scholarship Fund, presented by the West Grove-Avondale Rotary and the Oxford Arts Alliance. The Larry F. Thompson Scholarship Fund provides individual need-based scholarships to music students at the Oxford Arts Alliance Academy of Music. Larry F. Thompson (1942-2020) was a beloved member of the West Grove-Avondale Rotary and a music student of the Oxford Arts Alliance. In Memorium, we honor Larry's life and the song he always had in his heart through passing the torch and passion for music onto the next generation. This scholarship ensures that no student in Oxford, PA, will be denied access to a musical education due to their inability to pay or afford an instrument. Donate Today!

"My wish would be that every town should have places that open the mind to new experiences, views, thoughts and hosts community events. In Oxford we are very lucky to have the Oxford Art Alliance which has one large vision including art classes, art exhibitions, music classes, music events, movies for discussion, social events, education, and just plain good fellowship. So much under one small roof, I hope everyone in the area can find something to enjoy in what they offer to the community and in turn join the Art Alliance and help support them in their efforts."

"This organization has been nothing but an asset to my family and myself. Not only do I, as a Graphic Designer and Photographer, work closely and are a member (and my family), I also have had my kids participate in classes that the Art Alliance offers. My son has taken Guitar lessons with Hakaan, and my daughter has taken painting classes, and attended the art camp for kids in the summers. The shows are fantastic, and pricing is within budget as compared to other art sponsored shows. The Art Alliance offers a lot of EVERYTHING, for EVERYONE. If you haven't visited the gallery, it is open to the public, and VERY friendly. Go visit, and do yourself and the community a great service...join today!"

"The OxAA has been a godsend to my family. Through their lessons, my children have a higher knowledge of music via the exceptional teachers of the music academy but also a deeper appreciation for the arts as a whole. The summer camps have helped nurture and develop the soul of artistry in both of my children, which I am eternally grateful. The teachers of the music academy are without a doubt the definition of dedication and love of music. My children would not be in better hands, than in the Oxford Arts Alliance."
