OCEAN Ten opens at 6pm tonight at the Lone Goat Gallery in Byron Bay Library.

The exhibition is a collective of seven local artists and three guest artists from Sydney, New Zealand and the UK who will present their connection with and responses to the ocean.

The works will include sculptural silk shibori, ceramic penguins and dolphins, lighthouses printed on silk scarves, paintings of shorelines and underwater reef formations - to express each artist's focus and inspiration from the sea.

"The intention of the group is to collectively bring awareness to the issues of ocean ecology, the delicate nature of marine ecosystems and the sea creatures which inhabit them, and asks us to consider how are we looking after our oceans," co-organiser Bernadette Curtin said.

"Ocean Ten take their audience along the shoreline and to the ocean's depths, to shine light on the importance of heightening our awareness about appreciating and caring for our oceans.

"This exhibition celebrates the power and beauty of the sea, how we enjoy it, and the unique and beautiful marine life that call the ocean home."
