About The Oxbow Gallery

The Oxbow Gallery
The Oxbow Gallery

The Oxbow Gallery is a collective gallery owned and operated by 44 artist-members. The Oxbow showcases a variety of fine art techniques and mediums including painting, sculpture and photography and installation. Shows change every four weeks.

Our mission is to show serious art of local and regional artists, without overriding concern for commercial value and to provide a venue for lectures, films and discussion forums for the sharing of ideas and information relating to the visual arts.During a three year period each member or set of partners has a show in the large front gallery and a show in the back gallery. Members and partnered members are also included in two group shows every year. All proceeds from sales go to the artist/member.


The Oxbow Gallery periodically reviews applications for membership. Any artist wishing to be considered may send a letter of intent and a recent resume, including all contact information to the Gallery.
