9 by 5 Exhibition

9 by 5 exhibition

Invited to be part of the 9 by 5 Exhibition Tradition

Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre’s 9 by 5 Exhibition has become a nationally recognised event that celebrates diversity within the arts community. Artists from around Australia present their creativity on nine inch by five inch panels in a wide variety of styles.

This long-standing exhibition commemorates the original 9 by 5 Exhibition held in Melbourne in 1889 which featured Tom Roberts, Charles Condor, Arthur Streeton and Frederick McCubbin, where artists produced uniform artwork on 9 by 5 inch cigar box lids.

All exhibited works will be available for sale.

Purchase your 9 inch by 5 inch boards now and we look forward to sharing your artworks at the exhibition. Entries are open for all artists until Wednesday 27 November.
