“For the gallery’s first exhibition at Spring 1883, and after the challenges of the last year, I really wanted to present an exhibition that was specific to Melbourne. The gallery will exhibit the work of ten early to mid-career artists, each with a lived connection to Melbourne and Victoria, being either currently or previously based here. The artists are all predominantly painters, however several will present site specific work that extends beyond the canvas. The exhibition is a celebration of Melbourne and the unique opportunities the city has and continues to afford the artists and creative people who live and work here.”
