STUNNING scenes of locally-created artwork have been proudly exhibited to celebrate the Oxford Art Society's 125th anniversary.

Artwork of all mediums has been displayed at the Oxfordshire Museum in Woodstock until April 17, with mayor of the town Elizabeth Poskitt opening the exhibition last week at a well-attended private viewing session.

Peter Farley of the Oxford Art Society said the exhibition had not been open long, but was already attracting attention.

He said: "We have about 120 works of art on display, it's quite hard to pick a favourite. They are all so good.

"We have paintings and sculptures and prints in a range of styles and mediums such as watercolour and pencil drawings."

The Oxford Art Society has been running since 1891 and has been exhibiting work regularly around Oxford and the county ever since.

They have built up a highly regarded reputation of high quality visual art.

Mr Farley added: "We have a members exhibition in spring every year and then another exhibition in autumn for artists all across the country.

"As with all our exhibitions, the works on display have been selected by a panel of judges from works of art submitted by our members.

"You will find works in all disciplines and mediums, that will give the viewer an eclectic mix of styles and subjects, which means of course for the viewer, there is bound to be something of interest for everyone."

The exhibition at the Oxfordshire Museum runs until Sunday, April 17 and can be viewed from Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm and then Sunday from 2 to 5pm.

Find the museum at Fletcher's House, Park Street in Woodstock. The exhibition is free to enter and open to all.
