Vale Jacqueline June Hobson, our dear friend, mentor and patron of Scattered Arts

People like Jacqui Hobson don't come along everyday. She was feisty and talented, and an absolute stickler for quality in all things. Jacqui died peacefully on Sunday 12 May 2013 aged 87 years. All at Scattered Arts mark her passing with great sadness, but delight in the knowledge she was our dear friend and staunch supporter to the very end.

The 2013 Scattered Arts Cancer Council Morning Tea was a great success! Once again, the members baked till they dropped which was most appreciated by those who attended. The multi-choice raffle was also a great success, judging by the smiles of the winners.


Reaching Out.

This is a new Artwork finished today. Growing up in the bush I developed an affinity with animals and landscapes. Now that I live in Brisbane city, I miss the bush and take every opportunity I can to get back out into nature to take photo's and recharge myself. Now, with the communities raised consciousness of global warming and minimizing your carbon footprint, I feel the need to celebrate what is most beautiful about life growing up in my hometown.
 This painting is of a very common possum. It is an animal that can be found in the bush or in the city. Unlike people who can change town, state or Country and adapt well, the possum rarely survives being relocated from its place of origin. Once it has established a territory, it cannot be moved away as it will get bullied out of its new home by the locals. It is a place sensitive animal. I often affiliate with the possum, because I found it difficult to restart my life in the city after relocating from the country. Also the country…

Cancer Morning Tea a huge success!

Over 40 people attended the Scattered Arts Cancer Council Morning Tea today! The food was great and multiple choice raffle went off with a bang! I won a Wendy Goode Tea Cosy so I'm one happy camper! The morning tea is without a doubt one of SA's most exciting events. Sales were brisk and raffle winners were very happy indeed!

Hilary Wakeling's exhibition "Doggy Daze" is now on show! Join Hilary and friends of SA on Tuesday May 7 for a quick chat and also enjoy our Big Morning Tea, in aid of the Cancer Council.
