The Oxmarket Centre of Arts is a volunteer-run charity whose mission is to promote art and support artists in a professional and inclusive manner.
We provide a range of accessible exhibition spaces for artists, both emerging and local, and art societies and groups, whether national or local. In addition we curate exhibitions and run competitions designed to encourage artists to develop their practice. Our art policy is designed to promote high quality work.
All our exhibitions, over 150 every year, are free to the public, to encourage people in our community to engage with art. We attract over 30,000 visits a year. Most of the work on show is for sale too, so you can buy affordable, unique artworks all year round at the Oxmarket.
We are housed in a magnificent Grade 11 listed, medieval church in the heart of Chichester and have parking right on our doorstep. The deconsecrated church was converted to an arts centre in the early seventies and has been run as a charity ever since. We are looking forward to celebrating our fortieth anniversary in 2016.
