"When we become adults we quite easily get busy in our routine life and forget about the creativity, play and inner reflection. Cultures having art and craft as part of everyday life tend to be more balanced. Making young people realize the importance of health, happiness and innovation in any field, they are more inclined to carry this into adult life" - are the thoughts of Ric Fraser, President of Ocean Shores Art Expo.
The Ocean Shores Art Expo is one of the best in the Northern Rivers, region of New South Wales. The event is generally well regarded and often visitsed by tourists and locals from Byron Bay.
