New space for OVADA

To drinks at the new OVADA (Oxford Visual Arts Development Agency) space yesterday with artists Clare Bassett and Susan Moxley from the DEC group.  This delapidated warehouse offers a high top lit space, full of remnants of an industrial past, with ancillary offices and well worn wooden stairs to a ramshackle gallery.  Currently being used as an artist’s studio, it is drafty and chilly with rough and uneven concrete flooring; but generously sized, full of atmospheric potential, and in a strategically central location.  Just what the arts in Oxford need!  Let’s hope that OVADA, who will start programming in the new year, can hang onto it beyond the five years currently planned…

As they say, watch this space…
