Passing of Barbara Weir

Hello Artlovers, it is with great sadness that I share the news of the passing of one of Australia’s great First Nations artists Barbara Weir. Barbara left us on 3 January and was laid to rest in the Alice Springs Cemetery on 3 February. In 2007 I was thrilled to join her and her aunties on a bush painting trip - memories to be cherished. Barbara was the daughter of Minnie Pwerle from whom she was separated as a child as one of the “stolen generations”.
