Oxford Treehouse Gallery

The Oxford Treehouse Gallery

Oxford Treehouse Gallery (formerly Neill Studios), began with a simple move to beautiful Lafayette County. Walter and Vivian Neill started with a blacksmith shop in 2002. Walter built a painting studio/gallery nestled in the trees (some actually supporting the porches) in 2005 and the chicken palace in 2008 completed the evolution. The gallery doubled as their home and studio until construction was finished on their house on the same property in 2013.
“We opened Oxford Treehouse Gallery to share this space with other artists and to provide the public with a fine art experience in an unconventional gallery setting. We strive to fill the studio with art that we love and appreciate - that is both functional within the home and adds to the simple beauty of everyday life.”

Weekly hours Thursday - Saturday 10-6 and by appointment.
                                               328 County Road 418 (Fudgetown Rd.)
                                               Please call 662-236-1667 for more information.

Frank Estrada and Jennifer Pace

Congratulations to Frank Estrada for being featured in the Double Decker edition  and Jennifer Pace for her feature in the Home and Garden edition of Oxford Invitation.  Take the time to read the awesome articles and learn more about your fellow members!!

Bozart Exhibition featuring Cindy Aune

New Work by Paula Temple and Cindy Aune  

Artists’ Reception:  Friday, February 21, 6 – 9 pm
Bozarts Gallery presents two accomplished artists in a new show featuring work that is both abstract and figurative.  Cindy Aune’s new acrylic figurative work is expressive of the emotional states of her subjects.  Many of her canvases are fresh renderings of the human figure on canvases that are layered with paint and texture. Her portraits often radiate an emotional complexity that draws the viewer in. 
The rich colors and loose fluid style of Cindy Aune’s paintings resonate beautifully with Paula Temple’s fresh watercolors.  Temple’s exuberant abstract paintings were inspired by an Artist’s Residency in France last summer.  The expressive and colorful water imagery was drawn from her stay at the river town Marney-sur-Seine where she painted every day by the side of the Seine. Many of her paintings feature startling new techniques for creating her unique style including melting ice cubes on watercolor paper.  All of her paintings leave the representational mode of painting in search for the deep and expressive soul of the river.    
Paula Temple has been painting and teaching art for more than three decades at the University of Mississippi, and her stunning work in this exhibition represents the culmination of her painting career. 

Also on view:  The Oxford landscapes of Michael T. Maxwell and new work by the 15 members of the Bozarts Alliance.

The show up at Bozarts Gallery until March 28, 2014.
Hours: Thursday and Friday: noon - 5 pm, Saturday 10 - 4:00 pm and by appointment: 662-473-2484
