The Ocean Shores Art Expo committee has responded to Byron Youth Service’s call for community support by donating $1,000.
Treasures is the 2018 theme for the three-day Art Expo, to be held August 24 till 26 at the Ocean Shores Public School. President Richard Hazlewood-Ross praised the work of the youth service in valuing, supporting and advocating for young people.
He said, ‘Youth are our treasures for in them lies the power of rebellion and the hope for positive social evolution. We hope this donation will foster their ongoing creativity, action and vision.’
The Ocean Shores Art Expo offers more than $6,500 in prize money and is open to all artists. Entries close July 24. For more details visit www.osartexpo.com. BYS warmly welcomes this donation and encourages other community or business contributions so it can continue its good work. Its website is www.bys.org.au.
