Oxford Sings to Serve @ Oxford Community Arts Center
Jul 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Oxford Sings to Serve @ Oxford Community Arts Center | Oxford | Ohio | United States

The 4th Sunday of each month from 7 to 8:30 pm the Oxford Community Arts Center introduces its newest monthly event: Oxford Sings To Serve, showcasing several talented performers across every branch of our community.  A once monthly event, this traditional Broadway-style Cabaret is sure to not only get you tapping your toes and maybe even singing along but also feeling good about giving back locally. A reception with causal Hors d’Oeuvres and refreshments will be served throughout the evening.

Although Oxford Sings to Serve is a traditional style Broadway cabaret, artists are encouraged to bring their own unique styles to the stage.

Each Oxford Sings to Serve Cabaret will be unique to the chosen celebrated cause.

Paint Out – Plein Air Painting Group
Jul 23 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 am
Paint Out – Plein Air Painting Group

Paint Out - Plein Air Painters of Oxford and surrounding areas is an informal group meeting at 10:30 am the Second and Fourth Monday of each month.  Existing without a board, officers or regular meetings,  Oxford's Paint Out members decide where to paint.  During inclement weather, the group may choose to set up and paint on the OCAC porch or other available space within the building.  Membership is open to whoever would like to participate.

En Plein Air or plein air painting, is a phrase borrowed from the French  meaning "open (in full) air" and used to describe the act of painting outdoors, also called French: peinture sur le motif ("painting of the object(s) or what the eye actually sees"), where a painter reproduces the actual visual conditions seen at the time of the painting.
