A Place for Art
Art is a significant part of Oatlands’ history. From early American portraits to decorative arts, the former owners of Oatlands left treasures to be admired and studied. The 20th century owners of Oatlands had at least two artists in the family and they left works of their own such as sculpture and needlepoint. At one time these owners used the former plantation smokehouse, which now houses the Reclaim Your Story exhibit, as an art studio.
A place for Creating…
Since opening to the public in 1966, artists have gravitated to Oatlands as a place of beauty and inspiration. Art classes, taught by established artists, are held in the beautiful 19th century greenhouse. On your own — purchase a daily garden & grounds pass, bring your camera or art supplies, and spend the day being creative.
A place for Exhibiting…
Visit the Carriage House at Oatlands to see the on-going art show by local artists. Located in the former gift shop, the art show is available for your enjoyment while at Oatlands and all the art is for sale — for your enjoyment later!
