Alex Szolomiak who came to Tasmania in 1948 with the second contingent of Polish Ex Servicemen spent his 2 year contract with the HEC (Hydo Electric Commission) Tasmania at Waddamana. Alex painted Princess Elizabeth and King George ll and it's these two painting of his that hang in the Waddamana Power Station Museum.
Alex Szolomiak went on to teach Painting and Sculpturing at the Brooks High School here in Launceston. There are a few of his Sculptures in the grounds of the High School so I have been told.
Below is the Portrait of the Queen Elizabeth ll of England.
Found this photo from the local newspaper of 1952.
Waddamana is near the Great Lake but a little further south.
