22 February 2016
We were saddened to hear of the death of Jujuka Dolly Snell at the very end of last year. The funeral was held on Saturday 20th February. We hope to be including some of Jukuja’s work in an exhibition this summer, more details to follow.

On the 30th December 2015, one of the Kimberley’s most treasured senior artists and significant cultural leaders Jukuja Dolly Snell left us, her spirit returning to the place of her birth and her family, to Kurtal in the heart of the Great Sandy Desert. She passed quietly with her devoted husband, Nyirlpirr Spider Snell and grandson Japeth Rangi by her side.
