O3 Gallery Show - Oxford


My painting "Mangetout" is going to be shown at the O3 Gallery in Oxford.
From the gallery's website: housed in an old stone circular building, the O3 Gallery forms part of the old Oxford Prison C-Wing.
The O3 Gallery was founded as a unique partnership between Oxford Castle Ltd, and OVADA (Oxfordshire's Visual Arts Development Agency) and was opened by Her Majesty The Queen in May 2006. Named ‘O3’ (the third ‘O’ after Oxford Castle and OVADA) the gallery is believed to be the first of its kind – the first partnership between a public agency and private developer, to create a gallery that will generate opportunities and funding for the visual arts in Oxfordshire.

The Show
