The art exhibition features 313 adult artworks, all for sale, and a huge display of student works.
It opens from 10 am Friday 24th August at the Ocean Shores Public School hall, a great time to view and get in early to buy the artworks. The exhibition runs from 10am to 4pm from Friday to Sunday 26th August. Entry during the day is $2.
Doors open for the Friday 24th Awards Night at 7pm with the award ceremony at 8pm. The 15 prizes to be announced are valued all up at $5,500.
We have two exciting new art installations on the night, an interactive sound and light “Vivid” style production by Alex Moss & the display of a mural created by young artists in partnership with Byron Youth Service.
Music will be by Doni Raven & the Petes, catering is by senior hospitality students under the guidance of the experienced teachers from Mullumbimby High.
Exhibiting artists gain free entry, for others entry is $15.
Entry entitles you to a glass of wine. As alcohol is being served, the Department of Education policy states that it is to be an adults only event.
