Many people will be familiar with the name Hollie Smith, she is one of the country's most successful music artists with three #1 debuting solo albums, and a slew of awards under her belt. But in recent years the singer has been pursuing another artistic endeavour.

Next month, Smith will be opening her debut exhibition entitled 'It's Not Music', a collection of oil paintings that present the human form at its most raw and vulnerable. Her paintings - which have never been seen outside the members of her family and friends - will be shown alongside some of photographic slides by her grandfather, a former president of the Dunedin Photography Exhibition.

'It's Not Music' is showing at Eyes On Fire Gallery in central Auckland from 6th till 27th June.
