Australia’s Stained Glass: Short History… Long Story
Our International theme continues with a lecture by Dr Bronwyn Hughes on the stained glass of Australia.
Through a selection of stained glass windows installed in Australian architecture, this webinar will explore British connections and influence from the 1850s onwards, as both countries were changed by depression, war and economic circumstance. Stained glass, seen by many as simply decorative, was an outcome of society’s fluctuations and can be viewed as documents of art, architectural, and religious history.
We look forward to learning more about how the discovery of gold brought artists and artisans to enhance the building boom it spawned. Join us for this fascinating talk.
