The Gallery will mount a regular series of Artist's Choice exhibitions in coming years, and distinguished Queensland painter Lawrence Daws will commence the series. Gallery staff have worked with the artist to select works from the Collection that are particularly meaningful to him. The display will include works by artists who have influenced Daws or with whom he has had a personal connection. Examples of Daws's own paintings will also be shown in the adjoining Australian Galleries. 

An exhibition brochure is available for purchase from the Gallery Store or online
