On view at OMA through January 15, 2023, this exhibition is a survey of work by Southern California-based veteran artists whose art-making practices could be considered playful, tongue in cheek, and ironic. The colorful, Pop Art-inspired work in the exhibition explores the many different forms that poignant artistic expression can take. Ms. Zora will discuss her experiences and thought processes while creating this exhibition, and Ms. Dolgov will outline OMA’s work with the veteran community and their three-year partnership with The Veterans Art Project.

This meeting is open to all Oceanside Chamber members and invited guests only, and will be held the second Thursday of the month (odd numbered months), from 8am to 9:00am in the Oceanside Chamber conference room.

Join Us in Celebrating Oceanside’s Rising Stars

In September, the Oceanside Chamber will kick off its Rising Star Student of the Month program for the 2022-23 school year. The program, which launches its second cohort this school year, aims to champion students that have overcome significant challenges in their life but have managed to keep, or get back on track with their education. The Chamber honors a high school senior from each of our city’s high schools at the monthly breakfast events. Businesses and organizations are also welcome to mentor the students in their chosen career pathways.


At the end of the school year, our goal is to give scholarships to several students from each of our participating high schools to assist in funding a post-secondary education of the student’s choice. Last year, due to the generosity of our scholarship sponsors Genentech and Tri-City Medical Center, the Oceanside Chamber Foundation provided 11 deserving Rising Star students a total of $23,000 in scholarships.

TCMC - Promoting Healthy and Happy Families this School Season

(Source: Tri-City Medical Center) - Whether your children are learning the alphabet, algebra or AP chem this school season, it’s now more important than ever to focus on their health and happiness. “The pandemic and dependance on digital devices have greatly impacted their physical and mental health, which in turn affects the whole family,” said Ole Snyder, MD, a board-certified Family Medicine physician at Tri-City Medical Center.

A 2021 Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) brief describes how children’s mental health has worsened since the start of the pandemic, due to disruptions in their routines and social isolation. This has led to an increase in the symptoms of depression, anxiety and psychological stress; 22% experienced a decline in their overall mental or emotional health. Similarly, parental stress and poor mental health due to the pandemic can negatively affect their children’s mental health, as well as harm the parent-child bond.
