Paintings by leading Toowoomba-based artist Allan Cooney will be exhibited and auctioned at a fund-raising event later this month hosted at the Toowoomba offices of Creevey Russell Lawyers.
Creevey Russell Principal Dan Creevey said the exhibition on October 26 will help raise money and awareness in support of Motor Neurone Disease Association Queensland.
Mr Creevey said among the works up for auction is a portrait of Grammy award winning English singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse, who died in 2011 aged just 27.
“The auction will be conducted by Cyril Close who is one of this country’s leading auctioneers,” Mr Creevey said.
Mr Cooney said the Amy Winehouse portrait had only recently been finished.
“At Dan Creevey ‘s suggestion I have had fun with this painting, posting each stage of progress along the way,” he said.
“Dan and Creevey Russell Lawyers are hosting the exhibition for me on October 26th at the Creevey Russell rooms in Toowoomba and this along with a few others will be offered for auction to raise funds for motor neurone disease research.”
The event will be held from 6pm on Friday, October 26, 2018, at 580 Ruthven Street, Toowoomba.
