In 1911 Proctor sent a collection of drawings, including fans, back to Sydney for an exhibition at the Society of Women Painters' Clubroom. Refer The Sydney Morning Herald, 29th July 1911
To those who take an interest in works of art a visit to the Society of Women Painters' Clubroom in Elizabeth street will give pleasure, for there are at present some fine examples of Miss Thea Proctor's work. There are three fans on view, one having attracted much attention lately at the Goupil Galleries, London. It is evidently a French scene, the fountains in the background suggesting Versailles, and the figures are at the height of modern fashion. But it is the blue colouring and beautiful harmonics which form the chief attraction of this dainty piece of work.
This seems to be a description of this fan.
"Miss Proctor, whose fan designs are very distinctive and charming, has exhibited her work in several European galleries, notably in the New English Art Club, the Goupil Gallery, the Royal Academy, the Venice International Exhibition, and the Ghent Exhibition." The Argus, 28th August, 1913, page 15
