We were shocked and saddened to hear of the death of Nick Waterlow on November 9. He was Director of the Ivan Dougherty Gallery at Sydney’s College of Fine Arts since 1991, a curator of three significant Sydney Biennales (1979, 1986 and 1988), was a senior lecturer in COFA’s School of Art History and Art Education and had been honoured with an OAM. He was also Director of the Visual Arts Board at the Australia Council 1980-83. Before his death, Nick had been working on a book addressing the place of Australian art internationally and was involved with the master planning of a new University museum at COFA. We fondly recall Nick’s keen engagement with Performance Space and the performance community in the 25 years of Performance Art in Australia exhibition and showings in 1994. Respected as a teacher, mentor, writer, curator and historian, Nick Waterlow was affable, accessible, gentle, supportive and quietly influential. He will be greatly missed.

We were distressed to hear that Janice (Jan) McCulloch, editor and publisher of Art Almanac for the past 30 years, died suddenly in mid-November. Jan was a great supporter of innovative Australian artists and a significant collector of their artworks. In June 2005, Nick Vickers made Art Almanac, “the Bible of the Australian art world”, the subject of an exhibition at the University of Sydney Union’s Sir Hermann Black Gallery with hundreds of the magazine’s covers on display along with 60 works from Jan’s private collection. We got to know Jan in the 1990s when she generously allowed us to use the Art Almanac office on Day Street in the city to lay out RealTime. Sydney’s artworld has lost another significant figure.
