Below are a few photos of guests enjoying the art at the private view.
This stunning exhibition was one of the largest exhibitions the Oxford Art Society has mounted, with about 180 works of art on display by members and non-members in an eclectic mix of styles and mediums. There was something for everyone to enjoy including the splendid surroundings of the Cloister Gallery at St John Evangelist Church, Iffley Road.
Below are a selection of photos from the private view held on Friday 3rd October. The exhibition was formally opened by sculptor Johannes von Stumm FRBS, newly elected president of the Oxford Art Society
Graeme Salmon, Society Archivist, has put together an excellent booklet on the 1992 OAS centenary exhibition of key members of the Society during that period at the Museum of Modern Art, (now Modern Art Oxford).
