The Oxmarket Gallery, established in 1976 and a registered charity, offers flexible modern art space within a beautiful and atmospheric historic building for artists. The Oxmarket provides a hub for artists, art lovers and cultural tourists alike; allowing contemporary arts, crafts and culture to flourish in the heart of Chichester, off East Street.
The gallery is housed in a Grade II listed, medieval deconsecrated church, formerly St Andrew’s which was converted to an arts centre in the early seventies. The newly renovated building has three indoor galleries and has a charming courtyard – perfect for sculpture, all of which offer highly attractive hireable space for a wide range of artistic disciplines.
The Oxmarket has an assorted and dynamic range of over 100 exhibitions every year, which are free to the public. We curate and host quality exhibitions which change fortnightly and host cultural events, attracting over 30,000 visitors a year.
Nearly all of the artworks on show are handcrafted for sale thus offering visitors the opportunity to browse through affordable, unique, original artworks all year round.
