An artist for our place and time

 

 

 

Pamela Lofts (August 9, 1949 – July 4, 2012) left behind important legacies in the fields of visual arts and children's literature. Her ideas and vision reached beyond the Centre but for our readers it is her work in Alice Springs and the desert that is of particular interest and where, apart from her well-loved person, her loss will be greatly felt.

Our archive is not comprehensive but it does trace some of the lines of her legacy – her role as initiator and founding coordinator of Watch This Space (which endures to this day), her achievements as a children's book illustrator and her career as an exhibiting artist (from 1992  held 27 solo shows across Australia, and was represented in almost 70 group exhibitions in Australia and internationally). We reinstate excerpts and images from the archive here in her memory.
