About Us

Real Talent & Skill Are Easy To Spot!

The Great Oxonian Exposition is staged by ArtWorks Foundation is a 501{c}3 non-profit focused on helping artists grow, in their business and their work, through programs including exhibitions and education initiatives. 


We also award scholarships for advanced study workshops at schools for Fine-Craft, and are working to establish an endowment 

to fund Emergency Relief Grants to help area artists resume careers derailed by disasters or catastrophic illness.

  

ArtWorks Foundation will debut The Great Oxonian Exposition of 2019, Thursday and Friday, September 19th and 20th, 

at The Power House, the arts center operated by Oxford Mississippi’s Yoknapatawpha Arts Council. 


This two day, indoor art show will take place just steps from Oxford’s fabled Square, 

in advance of the Ole Miss / Southern California football faceoff (Saturday, September 21st). 


As the urbane Oxonian population is supplemented just before football weekends by thousands of fans 

seeking diversions to occupy themselves in advance of the pre-game party in The Grove, ArtWorks Foundation has chosen this time to team with the YAC in presenting the people of Oxford and their guests with this new festival.  


The Great Oxonian Exposition will feature stellar works of art in metal, glass, clay, wood, and fiber, 

as well as jewelry, sculpture, paintings, photography and more: presenting the highest caliber work possible is our foremost goal.

  


We Celebrate Talent
