Brunswick Street Fitzroy: sketches and urban history is an exhibition of sketches, illustrations, vintage photographs and clippings from old newspapers that share my long term passion for the architecture, history and community of Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. All of my artwork was drawn on location over the last couple of years, with watercolour added to the longer streetscapes in my studio.
Many thanks to the City of Yarra and Yarra Libraries for hosting this exhibition, and to the multitude of urban sketchers who kept me company on many a chilly morning.
I would also like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land, the Wurundjeri people, and to pay my respects to their ancestors and elders both past and present.
My work is shown in 12 display cases at the Library, and clicking on the links below will take you to more information about each one – especially the history. Please be aware that some vintage photos show people who are long deceased and that this may distress some people.
I hope you enjoy my exhibition and learn something new about this iconic Melbourne street. Please sign my virtual guestbook by leaving a comment – I would especially love to hear your stories about the places I have drawn 🙂
