Cutting edge art at CS Gallery

Published on 12 July 2018

Anu Patel is bringing her cutting edge art to the City of Melton and inviting residents to get involved.

Anuradha Patel is a public artist, sculptor and paper cut-out artist living in Bacchus Marsh, with a long career in public art projects in both Australia and the U.K.

Her Anu Patel: Recent Works exhibition is running at CS Gallery, Caroline Springs, until 23 August.

Through her art, Patel draws on her own Indian folk art tradition of paper cutting. Her paper cut-outs are the starting point for elaborate designs on metal, paper and vinyl, creating a celebration of daily life and ritual, referencing interaction between humans and animals, and reverence for all life forms.

The exhibition also features stunning window designs commissioned specially for CS Gallery.   

The Paper-cut Colour! - Community Art Exhibition is also underway at Melton Library and Learning Hub, and displays paper cuts made by community members who participated in Patel’s autumn workshops. It will also run until 23 August.

In addition to the exhibitions, Patel is also hosting opening event workshops on 14 July, at CS Gallery, and 21 July, at Melton Library and Learning Hub. Workshops begin at 10am. Bookings essential.
