Oxford Treehouse Gallery Presents South Mississippi Art League

The Oxford Treehouse Gallery generally features around 20 regional artists’ works; however, for a limited time, the Oxford Treehouse Gallery is featuring an all new collection in the main gallery room.
This new collection features work from The South Mississippi Arts League, which was established in 2015 with the goal of creating traveling exhibits and providing an outlet for Mississippi Gulf Coast professional artists to promote and display their work. 
This year, the 2017 SMAL members include twelve artists: Pat Abernathy, Carolyn Busenlender, Paulette Dove, Kat Fitzpatrick, Sandra Halat, Stacey Johnson, Carmen Lugo, Patt Odom, George Ann McCullough, Cissey Quinn, Julia Reyes and Norma Seward.
The South Mississippi Art League collection will be featured until March 18, and the gallery is open Thursday through Saturday, 12 p.m. noon to 6 p.m. However, gallery owner Vivian Neill, who lives and works on the property, said she is happy to open the gallery at any time for anybody.

Walter and Vivian Neill’s vision for the acreage they acquired began with building a blacksmith shop in 2002, where Walter specialized in iron, creating works such as cheese knives and bottle openers.
In 2005, the couple built a painting studio and gallery in the midst of the trees and named it Oxford Treehouse Gallery.

The Oxford Treehouse Gallery is also home to many local artists’ work. Catch a glimpse below:

Oxford’s Unique Woodland Venue at Oxford Treehouse Gallery isn’t only the perfect place to feature artwork, but it’s the perfect place to host all types of events.
“Nestled in the trees, down a private, secluded drive, Oxford Treehouse Gallery provides the perfect intimate setting for parties, receptions, workshops and meetings,” Neill said. “A kitchen is available for food preparation as well as an apartment for on-site stays. Oxford Treehouse Gallery is an ideal location for a small gathering or a party of 100.”
