Lena Pwerle

We are saddened by the passing of Utopia elder Lena Pwerle last month. She was very special to us, as to many of you whose Soakage painting holds a treasured place in your home. Her funeral is yet to be held as logistics are being arranged to have all of her family in attendance. This will likely be in May and will be held at Arnkawenyerr in Utopia where two of her sons are buried.

Cowboy Loy

Lena's brother Cowboy Loy, a fellow Utopia elder and artist, also passed away recently and sorry business for him is currently under way. His death was due to complications with covid-19. Cowboy was a stockman for much of his life, and a strong leader in his community who will be missed.

We express our condolences to Lena and Cowboy's families.
