Welcome to the sixteenth annual Ocean Shores Art Expo!
“Celebrating a Moment” is our theme, chosen to resonate with the Jubilee Celebrations of the foundation of Ocean Shores on the 29th March 1969. Many artists have chosen a historical subject, others choosing to capture significant moments. As always we revel in the artist’s inspiring interpretations.
Please take note of the sponsors for this exhibition. Simply, their support is essential to the success of the Art Expo and we should all be are enormously for this generosity. Without them, this event wouldn’t happen.
We aim to celebrate our local artists, who are the heart of this event. Gift yourself, or treat a friend and purchase an artwork. Our sales team will be circulating to offer advice and help with this process.
