Thank you for coming to our first community art party on Sunday, Nov. 19, 2023. Our friends and their dogs came to check out our Nature-Inspired Art Show, in support of the BCSPCA, and we’re happy to report that we raised over $200 through donations and art sales!
The show ended on Nov. 25, at 1460 Cedar Cottage Mews, but thanks to our new Scamps online Store, several of the prints are still available for purchase.
Special thanks to Authentic Wines & Spirits our wine sponsor for the evening, and to all the artists for their submissions, especially Chikako Ogawa, who’s whimsical illustrations struck a chord with our visitors.
10% of the show sales went towards the Vancouver SPCA. With one notable exception:
Half the purchase price for any of the prints by last summer’s resident artist Jennifer Bachhuber will go towards our $500 fundraising goal!
Meet the 2023 Artists
Jennifer Bachhuber is an Ottawa-based artist who found her passion for pet portraiture while visiting Vancouver BC in 2023.
The dogs she met inspired her to create a short series of paintings – trying to capture the unique glow she found in each one. @jennypennypaints

Mike Jackson is a local small business owner, artist and family man. Having a passion for both independence and community solidarity, Mike strives to find the good, and give back when possible. His art is often irreverent while offering social commentary, having references to pop culture and abstract organic themes.
For Mike, art is a fresh departure, not knowing where it will take him, and that’s just fine. @grubwear
Everett’s work explores the illusions of identity and the man-made archetypes that drive the considerations of our perspective, both historical and contemporary.
He works with found materials and objects in assemblage to video components, painting, air brush and drawing combinations commemorating the foundation of our present through a glimpse of our past as our landscape becomes increasingly less obvious to our heritage. @bcbocraft
