For over four decades, the Oxford Gallery has brought the finest in contemporary art to private and corporate collectors in Western New York.
The Oxford's preeminence among area galleries rests upon its representation of over 60 artists of regional and national acclaim.
The Oxford gallery maintains several thousand works in inventory, including paintings, limited edition prints, sculpture, and works in mixed media.
We also offer a fine selection of American and European paintings from earlier periods: 18th, 19th, and 20th century artists.
The Oxford Gallery will arrange specially commissioned works—from institutional size murals, reliefs, and sculptures to intimate portraits of a family or loved one—all from the finest of contemporary artists.

Like that of her artistic forebears, particularly the American artist Milton Avery and the “Group of Seven” Canadian artists, Bryce Ely’s art is an art of subtraction. Natural forms have been stripped to bare essentials, communicating to us more as ideograms in saturated color than as actual representations. Trees become small conical shapes or harsh cragged lines, hills and mountains are large curvilinear mounds, storm clouds are billowing masses of dark hue, and ice formations are jagged areas of white. The artist provides only the information required to project a mood or suggest a topography. A fundamental strength of her style, the artist requires that viewers take some responsibility for completing the image, filling in the details from their personal reserves of memory and imagination.
