OXFORD — Artists have until the end of the year to apply for Oxford Fine Arts 2020.
The Oxford Community Center’s three-day fine art and fine craft annual juried show ushers in the summer season by drawing local collectors, as well as those from the Baltimore, Washington, Annapolis, Philadelphia, Virginia and New York City areas.
From May 15 to 17, Oxford again will host up to 50 juried artists from around the United States.
The event will open Friday night with the preview party, where collectors, artists and guests will mingle, view the exhibit and buy art. Artist awards totaling $1,500 will be presented.
Throughout the weekend, artist demonstrations and discussions will be presented, and projects for young artists will be available.
At the close of the show on Saturday, there will be a bar, dinner buffet and live music for all to enjoy.
On Sunday afternoon, there will be a raffle drawing for works the artists donate to support the community center’s mission, which is to serve the greater Oxford community with a year-round schedule of educational, cultura, and recreational programs and events.
