With over 40 exhibiting artists, the white bricks and mortar of The Jam Factory will be home to a diverse array of artistic talent selected from our annual Open Call. Our mission to support local art is part of the foundations of The Jam Factory Gallery, with innovative new work consistently refurbishing our 116 year old walls. The Oxford Open will be showing in the Large & Small Gallery during Oxfordshire Artweeks 2020.
In the Boiler Room Gallery, sculptural hair artist Anne Veck and jeweller Chloe Mellen will be exhibiting media previously unseen by Oxfordshire Artweeks, whilst in the Restaurant Gallery you will discover artist and Jam Factory Arts team member Hanna Ross showing an array of intricate watercolour paintings.
The Jam Factory serves a dual purpose - both as a bar/restaurant and as a creative hub - playing host to various artistic groups, with regularly changing exhibitions throughout the year and an exciting program of events and classes.
We’re delighted to display original art from talented artists, emerging and established. Over the years we have exhibited a diverse range of work including ceramics, paintings, drawings, print work, jewellery and digital media.
The space we have here is bright, colourful and welcoming; to be enjoyed by all whether you are an art enthusiast or a casual browser. The Boiler Room Gallery - which was once used by Frank Cooper to boil his Famous marmalade - now makes the perfect gallery space with vaulted ceilings and lots of natural light. We also exhibit works in our Large Gallery and Restaurant so you can enjoy your meal, glass of wine or tea & a slice of homemade cake in creative surroundings. We also have a large display of art books for visitors to enjoy.
The Jam Factory is known as one of the city’s most intriguing contemporary art spaces, and we are very proud to be part of Oxford’s local art scene.
