Dorothy Napangardi passes away

Sad news I'm afraid. The wonderful artist Dorothy Napangardi has been killed in a car accident this week, along with one of the children travelling with her. She was on a family hunting trip. Dorothy will be mourned by so many people, and my heart goes out to her sisters Judy Watson Napangardi and Margaret Lewis Napangardi, her sisters and fellow artists. We have removed all of Dorothy's works from our website as a sign of respect. Dorothy was a relatively young woman and so talented. Her trademark paintings of country, mainly in black and white, are in collections and museums all over the world. Her passing is a great loss to everyone and to the Aboriginal art world. Kate
