The fully-renovated Woodstock Art Gallery occupies three floors of the former historical John White Building located in the heart of downtown Woodstock opposite Museum Square.  The Woodstock Art Gallery is Oxford County's largest municipal public gallery with a permanent collection of over 1500 works.

The Woodstock Art Gallery celebrates the talent of local, regional and national artists. Located on the first floor is the Dr. Leonard Reeves Gallery dedicated to exhibiting historical and contemporary artworks drawn from the permanent collection.  The Main Gallery features banner exhibitions that change three times a year. The Community Gallery, located on the second floor, highlights the creative endeavours of emerging and established artists along with a number of special projects developed in partnership with local community groups and organizations. 

The Woodstock Art Gallery conducts adult, teen and children's classes, workshops and programs and offers Volunteer opportunities, Membership benefits and Facility Rentals. From September to June, the Gallery facilitates monthly film screenings offered in partnership with the Toronto International Film Festival Film Circuit Group (TIFF). The Gallery's Gift Shop supplies unique items made by local artisans and the Art Rental program aids in revamping any home or office environment.
