Art Program

About Our Exhibitions

Along the interior of The Oyster Point Hotel hang the photographs, paintings, and stories of some of our favorite local artists. Every two months someone new will have the chance to showcase their work on our walls. Each new artist will be introduced to the public with an Artist’s Opening Reception. We encourage fellow artists, enthusiasts, and collectors to pay us a visit, as the exhibits will be available to view at your leisure.
