It was with great sadness we learned yesterday of the passing of Cllr Albert Richardson – twice Mayor of Preston, our landlord, long time supporter and our friend. Quite simply, if not for Albert offering the use of his then empty factory mill on Stanhope Street in 2011, Oxheys would never have started.
He proudly came to every one of our exhibitions and private views, enjoyed showing off “his gallery” to his friends and made a point of buying artwork from every one of the resident artists.
He was a true gentleman. A kind-hearted and generous man with a lively spirit, who enjoyed having a bit of fun. We have many happy memories from the 6 years we spent at the mill.
Albert – you will never be forgotten. Rest in peace.

At Oxheys we don’t do bored and stuffy – our planning meeting yesterday took place on the Flag Market outside the Harris Museum, in glorious sunshine with elderflower and dandelion & burdock juice aplenty. We discussed the outcomes of the recent Making A Mark event, assessed what had worked well and where improvements could be made. We also came up with a whole raft of mad ideas for a future intervention event – more on that in due course!
Also up for discussion was our recent successful bid for Lancashire Encounter 2018 and for that, we’ll need help from every artist, performer or musician based in Lancashire. Details will follow but essentially we’ll just need you to let us know who you are, where you’re based and what you do! Simples. You’ll then become part of our art map of Lancashire.
