‘ATO’ scam wants every last dollar in your account

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is warning about a spike in automated scam calls impersonating the ATO and asking people to transfer all their money to another account.

A trinity of Byron artists, a painter, a sculptor and textile artist/jeweller have aptly chosen the three-day Easter weekend to show off their latest works.

Rosie Jones loves to paint people, her favourite subject, and will display a selection of 25 oil portraits and pastel paintings depicting people and places from her travels.

Rosie, who left a career as a doctor behind in outback Queensland when she moved with her family to Byron shire, is hosting the exhibition at 9 Short Street, Brunswick Heads on Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10am-3pm.

Samantha Welch, who runs the Myocum School of Sculpture, will show off some of her fine sculptures of the female form and some abstract pieces in bronze, alabaster and plaster.

Susie Duggin, a textile artist/jeweller from Myocum, will showcase some hand embroidered dresses, hand-crafted silver jewellery and decorative objects made from seed pods stitched together.

The exhibition will be officially opened on Saturday from 5pm-7pm.

For info call Rosie on 0457 766077.
