Future Exhibition Opportunities:
The South Ocean Art Gallery is located in Freeport, at the South Nassau Unitarian Universalist Congregation, and operates as a not-for-profit entity. The goal of the gallery, administered by the Art Committee, is to raise awareness of the congregation as a community asset and promote local artists along with Long Island's cultural arts environment.

A new art exhibit is scheduled to open every other month at a time to be announced and is open to everyone who is interested in art. The featured artist attends the reception and offers insight into his or her art. Exhibited art is offered for sale, with a small portion of the proceeds donated to SNUUC by the artist to promote future art-related events.
