Proud winners of The Echo Creative Heart Award!

Seen here are some of our committee members: Suzi Bourke (Secretary), Margaret Oxley (Treasurer), Cheryl Tyler (Primary School Co-ordinator) and Victoria Dyte (Vice President) along with Mary Bernard (seated left) who stepped down from her long term role as Secretary in 2021.

Mary ran the Expo with Richard (former President) and Peter (former Data Officer) for many years and we are delighted to walk in their footsteps keeping the OS Art Expo running for many years to come.

The Echo Awards, held every five years, took place Wednesday 9th June 2021 at the Bangalow Bowlo. It celebrated 35 years of local independent journalism in the Northern Rivers and the community that have supported it throughout those times.

From the Echo:
“Recognising the importance of community creativity ‘The Echo Creative Heart award’ went to the Ocean Shores Art Exhibition (OSAE). Started in 2004 the OSAE has provided the opportunity for both aspiring and established artists throughout the community to exhibit and sell their work. Each year sees hundreds of adults and school kids exhibit and sell their work often being the first step in establishing an art career for young people in the region.”
