Current Exhibitions

ANU PATEL: RECENT WORKS

Tuesday 8 July - Thursday 23 August • CS Gallery

This exhibition features bold new studio work by Anuradha Patel. Focused on laser-cut metal work, prints and papercuts, works in this exhibition are inspired by the traditional technique of paper cutting. Anu draws on her own Indian folk art tradition as a celebration of daily life and ritual, referencing interaction between humans and animals, and reverence for all life forms. The exhibition also features three stunning window designs commissioned specially for CS Gallery.

Paper-cut Colour! - Community Art Exhibition

Tuesday 3 July – Thursday 23 Aug  • Melton Library and Learning Hub  

This exhibition celebrates our arts learning community who participated in Anu Patel’s ‘Paper-cut Colour’ workshops in Autumn. Come and see how different community members used coloured paper to explore different paper cutting techniques from all over the world. Age-old symbols of unity, longevity, peace and love have all contributed to a beautiful shared art-making experience!
