Alison Orme

Sadly we report the death of Alison Orme on Wednesday 8th November 2018

Alison was born in rural England and it was this rural childhood that gave her the love of landscape, that continued to find expression, in her art since arriving in Blue Mountains in 1980.

Alison worked predominantly in watercolour and mixed media and also enjoyed pastels, pen and ink drawing and her beloved silk painting. Fascinated by light and the it affects all we see she painted intuitively, in both traditional and contemporary styles. Alison’s association with SCAC began in 2004 as a watercolour tutor during which time she gave freely of her art, time, knowledge, energy and skill and quite successfully developing the talents of her many students over the years. She also participated on the Management Committee during her time at the Centre and was passionate to see SCAC develop as a place of learning and artistic achievement in a family friendly environment.

As a trained social worker, Alison enthusiastically also took on the task of an art tutor giving freely of her time and art material in the Healing Through Creative initiative that was run in the former Springwood Neighbour Centre

Alison is now at rest and not struggling anymore and in the words of a fellow tutor “She will now be able to paint those beautiful sunrise and sets for us to enjoy from above”

Our thoughts and prayers are for her family

We are very pleased to announce that the Blue Mountains City Council has given approval for the following works to be carried.

·  Relocation of water meter to eastern boundary. This will provide additional car parking spaces (completed)

·  Raise the floor in the small back room, remove the partition wall and provide an interconnecting door between  art rooms 1 & 3. This will create a much larger, user friendly room to accommodate larger classes

·  Refurbish the front car parking area including drainage works, to eliminate water ponding and to provide safer all weather access along with improved parking

Springwood Community Arts Centre Inc has been successful in securing a grant under the NSW Government’s 2017 Community Building Partnership Program to enable these works to proceed

What a great prelude to our 50th Anniversary in 2019
