Who Gave You Wings

Exhibition by Miss Laura Luke – Aquarius Café-Byron Bay- 12/12/14

Aquarius Cafe transformed its usual evening of fine dining, to toast the illustrative affair of local artist Laura Luke.

Tables and chairs were cleared out to showcase Laura’s intricate graphite illustrations on paper and honoured her maiden voyage into the exhibition scene.

The air hummed with excitement as onlookers mingled and mused thru the pieces whilst enjoying the sweet fruity concoction and canapé delights that were on offer.

Each illustration was placed strategically against the vibrant blue hues of the Cafe walls, like a radiant sky enriched by beautiful bold illustrative clouds.

Each piece was viewed like a chapter in sequence. Slowly unveiling unique visual perceptions, to a grander story suggestive to the title of the show.

Glasses were raised with delight, as Laura made a warm welcoming speech. At no moment did the rain deter the joyous celebration.

The night cast its shadow upon the day so too did the chuckles of laughter and cheeky conversations between friends and new acquaintances.

Gold circular stamps sparkled against original artworks indicating they had been appointed to a new admirer.

Huge thankyou to all the beautiful people that have supported the creative exploration leading up to the event, those that attended the wonderful eve, shared an ale, purchased some art and had a fabulous time.
