It is with great sadness that we inform our members of the untimely and sudden death of Jordan Wright, publisher of the Pacific Arts Association Journal. Beginning in 2006, Jordan revived our publication and with his staff helped us produce seven issues. His enthusiasm and commitment to the Pacific Arts Association was intertwined with his love for the arts and cultures of Oceania. We deeply mourn his passing and send our condolences to his family.
