Visual Elements 62: Annual Juried Exhibition

The Visual Elements: Annual Juried Exhibition is a celebration of talent and artistry that surrounds the Woodstock Art Gallery. Predating the formation of the Woodstock Art Gallery, the first open-call art exhibition occurred in 1959. Successfully exhibiting local artists, this initiative led to the formation of the Oxford County Art Association. Shortly after, the Oxford County Art Association lobbied various levels of government for the creation of the Woodstock Art Gallery as a part of Canada’s centennial initiatives.

Initially located in the lower levels of the Woodstock Public Library and called the Centennial Art Gallery, the Woodstock Art Gallery first opened its doors to the public on June 5, 1966. Fast forward to 2020, the Woodstock Art Gallery continues to be the leading resource for creativity and arts education in Woodstock and Oxford County.

The Woodstock Art Gallery would like to thank jurors Asma Khanani, Kristine MacGregor and George Wale for undertaking the critical task of selecting the artwork for this year’s exhibition. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they faced a unique challenge of meeting virtually and jurying an entirely virtual exhibition. The WAG congratulates all submitting, participating and award winning artists for Visual Elements 62. It is the artists’ and the community’s continued support and participation which enable the WAG to produce high quality exhibitions and programs, even during these challenging and unprecedented times.
