Welcome to the website of The Arts Society West Oxfordshire

Founded in 1968, we are one of some 360 autonomous societies worldwide, under the umbrella of The Arts Society,    Our aim is to encourage the arts by bringing together people with similar interests to enjoy in an informal atmosphere talks by top-class lecturers, outings to exhibitions and places of interest, day schools offering a more in-depth approach, and short tours, both within the UK and in Europe.

More locally, within The Arts Society, we are one of eleven societies forming the Wyvern Area, details of whose Study Days and other activities can be found on 

Within the charitable aims of The Arts Society we also seek to reach out into the local community by supporting art education in schools and by encouraging volunteers to take part in heritage conservation.
