Hundreds of artists and art appreciators visited the Ocean Shores Public School over the weekend to see this year’s exhibition of works in the tenth annual Ocean Shores Art Expo.

Prizes were awarded in six categories including Watercolour and Gouache, Printmaking, Drawing and Pastels, Oil and Acrylic, Mixed Media, Sculpture, and Photographic and Digital Art.

There was also a People’s Choice Award and awards in the primary and secondary sections for junior artists.

This year’s theme was ‘It’s all about the light’. In addition to awarding prizes to artists, the expo donates $3,000 to local schools. See more of the images in our gallery below or at www.osartexpo.com.

  1. A pity the event was polluted by the outrageous verbal attack on our Mayor by one of the committee members of Ocean Shores Art Expo who grabbed the microphone to launch a barrage of bile on Simon Richardson. Not only was it a shameful display of uncontrolled anger and shameful lack of decorum, it has put me off the whole event. I won’t be supporting this Art Expo until this jerk publicly apologises to the Mayor and resigns from the committee. It was such childish and inappropriate behaviour and absolutely spoilt the evening for those who heard his rant. Disgraceful.
