If the twelfth Ocean Shores Art Expo is anything to go by, creativity magically connects our community with heart and imagination.

The energy was buzzing as hundreds gathered for the launch party on Friday, with food and entertainment provided by Mullum High students, and a scattering of wild ones dressed to the theme of the show.
I want to thank so many helpers who volunteered time and skill to put the event on.
Each year I’m amazed at the joyful vibe as the committee and community work tirelessly to bring it all together.
Thanks to the local businesses who support it and also gift generous awards which encourage artists to keep on being the image-makers.
Thanks to those who actually bought art, a validation to artists who need a show like this to be visible to a wide audience.
Thanks to the schools and students for sensationally expressive kids’ art.
The creative experience at the Expo has nourished our souls once again!
Ri Fraser, president Ocean Shores Art Expo
