Spring-Time 5

Group exhibition, 2023.

Backwoods Gallery, 1 - 17 September, 2022.

Curated by Melissa Grisancich & Morgan Blue.

Exhibiting artists: Carla McRae, Melissa Grisancich, Morgan Blue, Molly Turner, Holly Leonardson, Hannah Maskell, Charlotte Alldis, Chloe Smith & Sophia Smithwick.

Spring-Time was created by artist Melissa Grisancich back in 2016. The premise of the annual show was to provide creative spaces for women to celebrate their work in all stages of their emerging and established careers. Spring Time took a break during the COVID-19 pandemic and is now back with no.5, lovingly curated by Melissa and Morgan Blue.

Spring Time no.5 is a celebration of the transmutational power of creativity. Each artist was encouraged to respond to the shared experience of convalescence and what it means to emerge into newness and change.

I respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, who are the traditional custodians of the land on which I live and work. Sovereignty was never ceded. I pay my respects to Elders past and present.
