Historical and locally inspired masterpieces on display at local beachside gallery.

Have your communities most important historical events brought back to life in a masterpiece of art by Australia’s own Peter Lawson. Peter Lawson has captured the splendour and historical importance of local communities around Australia and the world for over forty years. His intricate and meticulous paintings of portraits, landscapes, streetscapes, scenes and special events in eras long passed capture the imagination, seemingly drawing you into the painting.

Inspired by his grandfather’s brother, the legendary Henry Lawson at an early age, began a life long interest in the Pioneering period, the Gold Rush and various other great epochs of history.

Peter Lawson’s dedication and extensive work experience as a painter has won him the appreciation from buyers and critics alike who, overcome by the moods of light and atmosphere, feel like they are “walking into the painting, and being transformed to another time and place.” He paints his scenarios with an acute sensitivity to the era in which they are set, travelling to the area and studying early photographic records in order to transform these scenes into accurate accounts of times past.
