Art at Wolfson
Wolfson College actively collects art and manages an outstanding collection of paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, textiles, sculptures and ceramics. Artworks are displayed throughout the college.
We are fortunate that loans from artists, collectors and museums ensure the view is periodically refreshed.
Art Exhibitions are held regularly in the Private Dining Room and the Florey Room, on the third floor. Private views, with refreshments, which usually take place on Sundays, are advertised in advance and are open to all members. All exhibitions are open daily 10.00 to 19.00 subject to College commitments. Please ring the Lodge on 01865 274100 before visiting.
To find out what exhibition we have on display please see our Event Calendar.
A variety of crafts are displayed in the cabinets on the landing outside the common room. The Arts Society welcomes proposals from our members for displays.
College Art Society
The Arts Society which is a sub-committee of the Social and Cultural Committee (SCC) aims to bring together members of College, from different cultures and disciplines, who are interested in the visual arts. Learn more.
Life Drawing Classes and other activities
Life Drawing Workshops take place from time to time. Visits to museums, galleries and art related events are organised from time to time. The Arts Society has a membership of the Tate Gallery which means individuals and groups can attend special exhibitions free of charge.
Picture Loan Scheme
The Loan Scheme means individual members of College, who live in College property, can borrow an original work of art from the Arts Society, to hang in their office or room. Keep an eye on the Newssheet for details of when and where they will next be displayed.
Art Review and Frieze Magazine are available to read in the Common Room, courtesy of Arts Society subscriptions, as well as the magazine of the Tate Gallery.
