The Silent Voice of Architecture: Tom Wran
Join Dr Phillip Drew who will discuss the sculpturer Thomas Wran’s significance in Australian art history and role of sculpture.
This presentation will discuss Thomas Vallance Wran’s significance in Australian art history and role of sculpture as architecture’s silent voice, inasmuch as ‘architecture is history’.
Thomas Vallance Wran (1832- 1891) came to Rockhampton in 1870 as a selector and established himself in Balmain 2 years later. His sculptures can be seen on major Sydney monuments such as the General Post Office, The Great Synagogue, Annandale Creative Arts Centre and Founders Hall at Newington College. His last work is a coat of arms on Balmain Court House.
