Bacchus Marsh artist cuts through daily life

Anu Patels artwork displayed at the CS Gallery Pic Marco De Luca

Inspired by the Indian folk art tradition of paper cutting and the banality of daily life, Anu Patel’s newest exhibition is set to inspire and delight.

The Bacchus Marsh woman’s paper, metal and vinyl cut-outs will be displayed at the Caroline Springs Gallery. The exhibition is a celebration of daily life and interaction between animals and humans.

Melton mayor Bob Turner is inviting the community to visit the exhibition by the “talented” artist.

“CS Gallery has been lit up with colour,” Cr Turner said. “Anu Patel’s work is captivating, and I encourage residents from every corner of the municipality to come along and experience it for themselves.”

Patel has also designed window art specially for the CS Gallery.

Meanwhile, paper cut-outs, made by community members who took part in workshops hosted by Patel earlier this year, will be featured at the Melton library until August 23.

Patel will also host another workshop at the library on July 21. Bookings are essential.
