Playful, geometric art on display

Published on 18 March 2021

A playful and vibrant display has been installed at the CS Gallery windows in Caroline Springs and, with the gallery now open, it’s the perfect time to explore exhibitions inside and out!

The latest external window commission is by Melbourne artist Carla McRae. Her illustrations are filled will colourful geometric shapes, and children jumping, hiding, and sliding their way through ball pits, toy boxes, puzzle pieces, slippery-dips and building blocks.

City of Melton Mayor Cr Kathy Majdlik encouraged everyone to stop and enjoy the display outside CS Gallery.

“The artworks are a charming narrative about the experience of playing and learning through colour, shape and symbols. For children, these works can inspire their own colourful and geometric art,” Cr Majdlik said.

“This is a really fun and uplifting display, and I’d highly recommend taking the time to look at the images closely and enjoy the happiness they portray.

“It’s a great opportunity to attend the gallery and explore the exhibitions inside too! Right now, we’re also showing the Watching from Afar exhibition which looks at the cultural changes caused by COVID-19.”

Carla McRae’s window commission is on display at CS Gallery now until 1 November.

The Watching from Afar exhibition by Susumu Matsuura and Thomas C Chung is on display at CS Gallery now until 29 April.
