The Director’s Circle is our upper-level supporter’s scheme for philanthropic individuals who care deeply about the vitality and promotion of contemporary art in the UK. Director’s Circle members help us to offer career-defining opportunities for artists and art-practitioners by providing regular and reliable income in an ever-changing economic climate.

Working with Modern Art Oxford allows the possibility of creating something that is representative and completely free of constraints. Mohammed Qasim Ashfaq, artist It’s Me to the World, 2016

Director’s Circle members receive regular opportunities to meet artists, collectors and gallery Directors. There are VIP receptions throughout the year, tours of exhibitions, private collections and art fairs, plus priority booking on international trips.

In addition, Director’s Circle members receive;

  • Updates on gallery news and invitations to events.
  • Advanced opportunities to purchase Modern Art Oxford’s limited edition art works by emerging and renowned contemporary artists.
  • Acknowledgment onsite at the gallery and on our website.

If you would like to speak to us before making your gift, we would be delighted to discuss the programme further.
