  1. Just a moment, for ‘Celebrating a Moment’ is the theme of this year’s Ocean Shores Art Expo as that moment in time is but a heart beat in the art of Ocean Shores. The waves come in and come out and ebb and leave a print on the sands of time.
    Any moment is yours to interpret as the moment is so short and precise that the moment maybe missed and skipped but it is not missing or shipped out at Ocean Shores Art Expo for there are 276 entries of exquisite quality and more that 200 passionate students have put their heart into many moments they have experienced in defining just one moment in their life that they have laid it out for you on canvas.
    Please come and spend a moment and see with your own eyes what today’s pupils can do.
