Warren Padula, a Noyac artist whose work was in the collections of several prominent museums, died on Sunday, with his wife, Elaine McKay, by his side. He was 71 and had cancer.

A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Mr. Padula was at the forefront of the digital revolution among visual artists, producing large-scale digital fine art prints of his own photographs, as well as archival prints for other artists. His work is in the collections of the Denver Art Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Musee de la Photographie a Charleroi in Belgium.

A memorial service will be held later this year. 

A full obituary will appear in a future issue of The Star.
