Sponsor info

The Ocean Shores Art Expo has been running for 18 years since 2004, initially as the Ocean Shores Art & History Expo and then with its current name. While the Expo has previously been held at the Ocean Shores school, because of ongoing Covid restrictions preventing events at the school, this year the Expo will be held at the Ocean Shores Country Club in the main room opposite the drinks section.

As a volunteer non-profit organisation, we rely on sponsorships to support the costs involved in organising the exhibition and the associated cultural events.

Sponsors of this Expo are special individuals and businesses who support local community events and cultivate a greater sense of community through the arts. In return, they benefit from the potential exposure both during the lead-up to and over the event weekend.

There are many ways at different levels to assist the Ocean Shores Art Expo, all very much appreciated.

There are seven categories with prizes awarded in each category: 7 First ($1,000) prizes and 8 Second ($500) prizes (Please note Oil & Acrylic have 2 x Second prizes because of the size of the category):

Watercolour & Gouache
Printmaking, Drawing & Pastels
