Lights Everlasting book launch
Almost hidden within religious buildings, hospitals, school chapels and civic buildings, stained-glass windows tell of Australians at war. Bronwyn Hughes focuses on commemorative stained glass-an overlooked art form-describing its rich artistic and architectural heritage and the artists and firms who created it. Memorial stained glass serves to depict and illuminate the men and women who fought and died for their faith and their country. It has a tragic beauty.
Join Dr Bronwyn Hughes OAM in the St Peter chapel, as she talks to historian Dr Liz Rushen AM about her last book, Lights Everlasting, Australia's Commemorative Stained Glass from the Boer War to Vietnam.
After the event, get entertained by sea shanties with a drink from the Flying Angel bar.
