Our Shop

The Artery is a small but perfectly formed Art Centre nestled in the heart of Banbury Town. A wide range of materials, excellent product knowledge and good customer service, makes us the place to start in art.

The Artery is owned and managed by a professional artist and art tutor after seeing the need for an art shop that specialised in quality materials and known brands. His passion for the arts is evident from the many types of items that can be found on our shelves. We cater for the Calligrapher and Paper crafter too with our selection of nibs, inks and papers, see our Current Stock Lines section.

We hold regular, free Art Demonstrations to help inspire and show how to use the many products that we sell. Alongside these, we host Art Workshops that cover all media: Watercolours, Drawing, Oils, Pastel, Calligraphy, Life Drawing and Acrylic painting.
