Celebrating 20 years of The Ocean Shores Art Expo!

This year is the 20th Anniversary of the Ocean Shores Art Expo. The very first exhibition was held at the Ocean Shores Community Centre and once again the Expo will be held in this hall from the 3-5th November.

The theme is “Celebration” as we acknowledge 20 years of supporting artists and associated cultural events in our local Community. The theme is very open and broad, understanding people celebrate in many different ways.
