Sarah Wiseman Gallery is the largest independent gallery space in Oxford and has built a strong reputation for ambitious and engaging exhibitions of contemporary art by established as well as emerging artists. Director Sarah Wiseman opened the gallery in 1998 and it was quickly established as a leading space for contemporary art in Oxford. Sarah has sought out a varied group of artists with an eye to individuality and technical accomplishment, reflecting her passion and commitment to contemporary art.


Over the years, we have come to focus our expertise primarily on contemporary British painters. As a gallery, we support original voices in painting, seeking opportunities for our artists to further develop their careers. We aim to create a point of focus through presenting an interesting gallery programme of solo exhibitions as well as carefully curated, themed group exhibitions.


The breadth of artists we work with reflects the diversity of our clients, who range from experienced art collectors to those intending to make their first art purchase. We aim to enthuse our visitors with a variety of artwork in a spacious, relaxed setting and to encourage engagement with contemporary art.


A destination for lovers of contemporary art, Sarah Wiseman Gallery is an inspiring experience for locals and visitors to Oxford alike. The gallery is situated on South Parade in Oxford's stylish Summertown area amongst independent boutiques and restaurants.
