Free Public Lecture - Graham Lupp OAM, Artist
Join Bathurst Artist Graham Lupp OAM as he discusses the story behind the design and architecture of the buildings of St Stanislaus' College. Author of the acclaimed two-volume art-history publication Building Bathurst -The Story of those who built Bathurst and Central NSW, 1815—1915, Building Bathurst Graham's book is a biographical survey of those architects and builders who built Bathurst and much of Central New South Wales in the period from the founding of Bathurst, the oldest inland European settlement in Australia, in 1815 to about the end of WWI.
His extensive and meticulous research details the contribution made by the major figures who lived in Bathurst, and also spread their influence by working all over Central NSW. In 2019, Graham's work was acknowledged with a Queen’s Birthday Honours, Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for service to community history in Bathurst. The symbolism of the world’s architecture has also gradually emerged as a dominant theme in Lupp’s painting career. In particular, his attention is devoted to those examples which, through the skill of their creators, best express human spirituality. He considers religious architecture, from all parts of the globe, to be perhaps the pinnacle of human creativity.
