Group Exhibition
16 March – 9 June 2021 • During Library opening hours • Melton Library and Learning Hub

This group exhibition curated by Karyn Leong features diverse artists in the Melton and Bacchus Marsh region who have charted their artistic response to COVID-19 as it sweeps the world, bringing new experiences of lockdown, isolation, lost plans, fearing for themselves and their family’s health and feeling powerless. The exhibition explores how these adverse conditions inspired local artists to be creative and react to the pandemic positively, using their art to reclaim a sense of control over their own individuality and self-expression. The exhibition includes paintings, photography, illustrations, weaving, digital art, fibre-making and poetry.

Exhibiting artists: Kate Rozsa, Anne Cadzow, Elysium Spencer, Kelly Busuttil, Melissa Spencer, Judy Hudson, Karen Dodemaide, Lynne Still and Karyn Leong.
