GOLDTOWER CELEBRATES CHARTERS TOWERS HISTORY

PETER LAWSON

Goldtower is humbled to be able to partner with a renowned Australian Fine Artist Peter Lawson.  Peter’s work is documented throughout Charters Towers including a historical scene of Mosman Street, in 1985. 

Goldtower will showcase Peter’s works of not only Charters Towers in it bygone era, but works of Australiana on the building formations.  This will give the precinct a tourism destination advantage.

A LIFETIME ON CANVAS

Born in Townsville in 1946, Peter grew up on Magnetic Island, and has had a career as a professional artist for more than 50 years. The great-nephew of noted Australia poet Henry Lawson, Peter still lives and paints on Magnetic Island.  Peter’s great uncle – poet Henry Lawson –  gave him the inspiration to set himself up as an artist for life.

“I started reading his poetry and then I painted a picture of the old bullock teams. Before I knew it publishers were deadly interested in what I had painted.”  Peter went on to illustrate Henry Lawson’s poetry and the rest is history.
