Exhibitions and art fairs in Oxfordshire

Hello, 2022! It truly is lovely to see you.

January is always an ideal time to browse exhibitions and art fairs across Oxfordshire without the crowds. Spend cold, clear days walking off the festive pounds in museums and galleries in Oxford and across Oxfordshire. Or perhaps just stand and gaze at some unbelievable art again.

Some museums and galleries may now require booking for exhibitions and art fairs that you used to be able to just rock up to, and others may have drastically reduced visitor numbers or revised opening hours, so be sure to check on their websites before you travel.
