Art Late Summertown 2023

Following the success of previous Art Late evenings, The North Wall Arts Centre, the Sarah Wiseman Gallery and Turrill Sculpture Garden are delighted to present another sociable evening of exceptional art and conversation on Oxford’s South Parade, Summertown this May.


The North Wall

Jane Strother: Borderlands (10-27 May)

As a keen walker, Jane Strother explores landscapes, noting and recording marks of human activity or intervention, evidence of changing use. Subjects are rooted in these landscapes, including the south west coast path of Devon and Cornwall, extensive areas of fringing salt marshes in Essex and local field boundaries in Oxford.

Meet the Artist: Jane will be working in the gallery on starting points for new ideas and will be pleased to chat to visitors.

Sarah Wiseman Gallery

Veronica Wells: Faces Amongst Spaces (4 – 27 May)

Veronica Wells specialises in fashion-inspired portraiture. She draws her influences from popular culture, examining images that portray an idealised way of life. Fashion, material possessions, image, style, and relationships are all explored enticing the viewer into her world. Mixing rough and broad brushstrokes with finer, more intricate details, Veronica Wells’ paintings question ideas of perfection.

Turrill Sculpture Garden

Janet Cross, Isabel Knowland and Anthony Lloyd: Sculptures (11- 27 May)

For Art Weeks, The Turrill Sculpture Garden will be showing works by chisel and kiln creating garden treasures by Janet Cross, Anthony Lloyd and Isabel Knowland.

Art Late Talks

At 5.45pm & 6.15pm, join art historian Lizzy Rowe for a free informal introductory talk exploring South Parade’s rich artistic offerings and history! Meet outside Summertown Library.
