Pool Party Results

Just a short note here, as I’ve been pre-occupied with preparations for a house guest and with an intractable essay on Pintupi painting.I hadn’t heard anything about the results of the auction at AGNSW in support of the swimming pool initiative for Kintore, but here’s the short version, thanks to Paul Sweeney:

The pool auction went really well. In total the amount raised was $902,500, with the 5 PT works achieving $583,000. George Tjungurrayi $92,000, George Ward Tjungurrayi $100,000, Ronnie Tjampitjinpa $105,000, Walangkura Napanangka $126,000 and Ningura Napurrula top scored with $160,000!”

Does anyone else find the search function on the web sites of the major metropolitan newspapers (The AgeSMH, even the Australian) useless?
