A group exhibition by artists Sarit Cohen, Tiff Brown, Mark Mohell, Macdonald Nichols, Peter Ranyard and Peter Rohen. All from distinctly different cultural backgrounds, the artists use print making, ceramics, paintings and photography to investigate themes of place, memory, identity, travel, nostalgia and diaspora.

All six artists have broad art experience and successful professional lives in design, photography, journalism and art education.

The group mention, “One of our deepest needs is for a sense of identity and belonging and there is a human need to feel somehow immersed in a chosen place. Identity is a product of the distinction between oneself and others – both past and present – and extends to objects and things and to spaces and places.”
