The CS Gallery provides an excellent opportunity for artists to exhibit their work without the concern of exhibition fees or commissions.
Who is your Neighbour? Linda Abblitt Woodblock Prints
Who is your Neighbour? is an exhibition exploring striking woodblock prints by Melton South’s Linda Abblitt. This exhibition features work inspired by Linda’s travels as a humanitarian Librarian, as well as a specially developed series of portraits of neighbours and friends in Melton. Her portraits remind us how personal life experiences of people right here in our community connect with political and social events experienced all over the world.
