A Place To Return is a group exhibition of the work of emerging artists Deidre Fitzpatrick, Janet Cheetham and Melissa Drew.
This body of work captures the beauty and energy of landscapes that resonate in the artists’ experiences. Their observations of architecture, harbour foreshore, and surrounding tranquil bushlands offer a window through which to view the lives of the artists and their communities during the upheaval of Covid-19 and the slow return to normalcy in its aftermath.
Deidre’s work has been exhibited in the Waverley Woollahra 9 x 5 Landscape Art Prize.
Janet had her work featured in the 2021 Primavera exhibition at The Shop Gallery and Autunno at The Watch House in March this year.
Melissa is a Northern Beaches artist returning to painting after a career in commercial graphic design. This is Melissa’s first presentation of work inspired by her affinity with her local region.
