'Living Legends' artist Laura Smith is presenting a special portrait exhibition celebrating Queensland's famous personalities from the world of sport, arts and culture this Spring.
Held at Urban Paradise Gallery from Saturday 1st September to Sunday 16th September, the 'Living Legends' by Laura Smith incorporates the portraits of many of our most beloved Queensland living legends, who have all personally sat for the artist.
The walls of the exhibition space will show 20 stunning portraits of local 'Living Legends' including former international cricketer Alan Border AO, former rugby union player John Eales AM, former rugby league player and television commentator Darren Lockyer, dramatist and playwright David Williamson AO, previous Governor of Qld, The Hon. Leneen Forde AC and founder of Hear and Say, Dimity Dornan AO and Lady Jane Edwards AM.
Laura is an accomplished artist who spent her formative years in Africa, Malaysia, Indonesia and Europe. In later years, she resided in the United States and the UK but now calls Australia home.
Laura's work is displayed in collections worldwide and has been exhibited in many international galleries, including The Summer Exhibition at The Royal Academy, London.
Complementing Laura's 'Living Legends' showcase is a beautiful sculpture exhibition, entitled 'Wild Forms' by fellow artists Peter Steller and Mela Cooke.
