Thomas Gleghorn was born in 1925, in Thornley, England. Three years later, he emigrated with his family to the depression town of Warner’s Bay, on the shores of Lake Macquarie in N.S.W.
Under the guidance of William Dobell, Gleghorn embraced painting at the age of 24 and began exhibiting in Sydney from 1954. Today, Thomas Gleghorn is one Australia’s leading artists.
Gleghorn won over 30 major awards between 1957 and 1973 and held around 34 solo exhibitions from 1959 to 1992. Thomas worked mainly as a painter, with brief forays into the world of linocut, an artform which he taught himself.
For almost 50 years, Gleghorn has consistently won a multitude of art prizes; his works are represented across Australia, from regional and state galleries, to National Gallery of Australia. Corporate collections include IBM, ICI, State Bank, Perth, Sydney, London and Hong Kong.
Gleghorn was honoured with the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for service to the arts as a painter and teacher. Thomas Gleghorn’s enduring love of art is matched by his love of good food and wine.
