This year marks a union between two major events into one during a special weekend. The 2019 AAOS Juried Fine Arts, 3D & Photography Show shares the venue with Five Stars Dealership Sand and Sawdust Festival.
Inside the Ocean Shores Convention Center, find a juried art show. This is the first time, according to Ed Schroll, former president of the Associated Arts of Ocean Shores Fine Arts, the show is hanging totally juried art.
Thursday, June 27 will bring Marissa Laubscher, Project Manager
ArtsWA | Art in Public Places Program Washington State Arts Commission, to Ocean Shores. She will be judging the art entered in this 2019 version of a long-time favorite event.
"Photography was added to the fine arts show and in the most recent addition is 3D art," Schroll said. "This is the first time all the art shown is juried."
While chainsaw artists are designing outside, find this fine art, 3D and photography inside the convention center Friday-Sunday, June 28-30. Doors are open 11 am-6 pm, Friday and 10 am-6 pm, Saturday and Sunday.
