OAS Gallery Exhibitions

Oakville Art Society provides several outlets for members and students to display and sell their artwork, both in-house and in Oakville. Each year, we typically exhibit at Queen Elizabeth Park Community Centre and at one of the Oakville Galleries sites. Check this page for updates, as well as the Juried Show and Student Show pages.
