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

The WAG celebrates the talent of local, regional and national artists. The Dr. Leonard Reeves Gallery, located on the first floor, is dedicated to exhibiting historical and contemporary artworks drawn from the permanent collection. The second floor Main Gallery features banner exhibitions that change three times a year. The Community Gallery, also located on the second floor, highlights the creative endeavors 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 (TIFF) Film Circuit program. The Gallery’s Gift Shop supplies unique items made local artisans and the Art Rental program aids in revamping any home or office environment.

The WAG has free admission, is fully accessible, and has free parking located nearby.
