Description

Celebrating the art and architecture of Francis Greenway's greatest achievement, St Matthew's Anglican Church, in this, its 200th year. The walls of the original St Matthew’s were pulled down in 1818, when a government committee reported that they were built of ‘inferior bricks’ and of ‘bad quality’ mortar. Governor Lachlan Macquarie then handed the design and the building of the church over to the Colonial Architect, the famous ex-convict, Francis Greenway. Although Greenway died in obscurity, he has left the Hawkesbury an enduring aesthetic and architectural statement in St Matthew’s. Come and enjoy a selection of works from the Gallery’s collection that focus on the architecture, the beauty and the brilliance of Greenway.
