New artwork unveiled on CS Gallery windows

Published on 25 January 2024

New artwork that celebrates the City of Melton’s diverse community has been unveiled on the windows at the CS Gallery.

The Picnic by Justine McAllister represents our multicultural and diverse community enjoying all the activities that are on offer in our great City.

It shows how each member of the community contributes to making the City of Melton the great place that it is to live, work and play.

The artwork stretches across seven windows and portrays a large communal picnic that is a powerful ode to the values of connection, inclusivity and recreation that bind us together.

McAllister, represented by Eddie Zammit, is a Melbourne-based artist and has been creating large-scale murals for display in public places for more than 10 years.
