We’re very busy here at the O3 Gallery. We have got so many things for you to come and see, from dance performances to late night shopping events! Here is a quick update of What’s On and some dates for your diary. So get the pens ready…
It is the last week of our OUTLINES exhibition featuring works by Susan Wheeler, Colin Moore and Anna Dillon. This exhibition explores and celebrates the shapes and patterns created by the contoured landscape of the British countryside. It ends this Sunday 23rd November so don’t miss out!

We are also getting ready for our future exhibition Winter Moon and Late Night Shopping Event which takes place on Saturday 29th November 5- 8pm.

Featuring artwork by various artists, including: Katherine Staples, Flora McLachlan, Morna Rhys, Peter Vigors and Nicola Kerslake. So come and browse our selection of hand-picked ‘Art-Objects’ from the O3 Shop; including cards, ceramics, art prints, stationery and jewellery. There will be homemade mince pies, complimentary wine and goody bags too!
Late Night Shopping Event
However, if you can’t wait till then, we have another Late Night Shopping Event on Friday 21st November! So if you are out and about for the Oxford Christmas Light Festival then pop on by. We have lots and lots of exciting new stock, so if you’re looking for that special gift then look no further! We have a variety of unique art-led gifts for you to choose from this Christmas.
We are very pleased to announce that we will be stocking origami decorations by Origami Est, new lines from established British jewellery company Tatty Devine, Literary inspired jewellery and cufflinks by Literary Emporium, plush screen printed dolls by Naked Lunge, smart classic stationery from Present and Correct, and much, much more! Be sure to “shop independent” this Christmas and help us to support British artists and designer-makers.
Also this Friday 21st, we have the dance group, Body Politic, who will be performing their exciting and vibrant new work, fusing Hip-hop and Street dance, at 7pm and 7.50pm, outside the gallery. The piece was created as part of a Dancin’ Oxford project supported by MINI Plant Oxford. Plant Oxford’s support also enabled three community dance workshops to take place during Dancin’ Oxford’s Family Dance Week in October. Choreographed by Shannelle Fergus and Glenn Hudson the piece is bound to entertain and inspire…so don’t miss it!
Project: A Mural for Oxford Castle
Also going on outside our doors this November is a mural by local illustrator Charlotte Orr. She has been commissioned to paint a themed mural in the Castle Yard at Oxford Castle and has been busy working on her ‘enchanted winter castle’ piece come rain or shine, and we’ve been charting her progress on our social media pages. We can’t wait for the result, it’s sure to be magical! Want to see more of Charlotte Orr’s work? Here is her website http://www.charlotteorr.com/
We look forward to seeing you!
