Winter in Melbourne will be colourful thanks to a new exhibition courtesy of Arts Project Australia (APA) and curated by Kirsty Grant. APA is a creative social enterprise that supports artists with intellectual disabilities, promotes their work and advocates for their inclusion in contemporary art practice. Kirsty is an independent Art Curator and Writer, having previously been Director of Heide Museum of Modern Art, and Senior Curator of Australian Art at the National Gallery of Victoria.

Entitled PLANT/LIFE, the exhibition celebrates the plant life that surrounds us through drawings, paintings, ceramics, soft-sculpture succulents and over-scaled sunflowers. This profusion of floral colours and greenery is the work of contemporary and APA studio artists, including Anthony Romagnano, Brigid Hanrahan, Chris O'Brien, Georgia Szmerling, Lygin Ang, Philip Truett, Robert Brown, Rosie O'Brien,Emily Ferretti, Yvonne Kendall and Christopher Langton.

The exhibition runs from 25 June to 14 August. You can also look forward to:

15-18 June - works of Georgia Szmerling and Emily Ferretti being created live onsite. PLANT/LIFE features a specially commissioned immersive wall painting by Georgia Szmerling and paintings by Emily Ferretti on the windows of APA's Collingwood Yards gallery.

* 25 June 2-4pm - an opening celebration and exhibition floor talk will be held Saturday with curator Kirsty Grant.
