The University of Newcastle’s Art Community is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Penny Finnigan.

A passionate advocate for the arts, Penny’s long connection with UON's Watt Space gallery has been instrumental in its longevity, profile and continued focus on the student experience. Penny firmly believed in the future of Watt Space and the importance of providing the very best experience for the students of the University  of Newcastle. She was committed to the origins and history of Watt Space as a student led initiative and this was at the heart of her work.
