About Us

The fifteen full time Oxton Artists are keeping busy in these uncertain times. They cannot meet, but keep in touch virtually.

So holding on to the certainty of better times ahead, and their much loved Gallery reopening, they look forward to seeing you again.

Oxton artists 2019

“Having lived and worked in and around Oxton for many years, I’m constantly impressed by the creativity that finds its home here. I deeply believe that supporting living artists in their endeavours is one of the greatest things we can do and I see the Oxton Art Fair as an excellent opportunity to do just that.”

Angela Samata, Winston Churchill Fellow for research into Outsider Art and former co-ordinator of the John Moores Painting Prize opened the fair in 2018

The relationship that has developed between the Williamson and Oxton Artists through this initiative has been mutually rewarding and very satisfying. The quality of work produced by local artists is undeniable and we are pleased to be a focus of activity throughout the year, but especially for this event. The Oxton Art Fair goes from strength to strength and it now represents the busiest weekend of the year at the gallery. I look forward to seeing the work that is presented as there are always surprises that make each new year an exciting opportunity.
