Church benefits from Crowe and Lawless' painting
Stuff.co.nz - 22 November 2000
SYDNEY: The painting efforts of New Zealand actors Russell Crowe and
Lucy Lawless have helped raise almost $A1000 ($NZ1300) for an
arson-damaged Sydney church. Gladiator star Crowe and Lawless, of
Xena, Warrior Princess fame, were among 130 celebrities who
contributed paintings for an auction to raise funds for St Patrick's
Cathedral in Parramatta.
....Lawless' canvas showing a church and captioned "We are all God's
people" fetched $A370. The highest price paid was $A2500 for a work
by Australian artist Max Mannix. The auction raised $A50,000 for the
fund to rebuild the 65-year-old cathedral, which was gutted by fire
four years ago.
