9 by 5 Exhibition

9 by 5 exhibition


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 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 Conder, Arthur Streeton and Frederick McCubbin, where artists produced uniform artwork on nine by five 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 will be accepted from all art makers until Wednesday 27 November.

Please read through conditions of entry prior to purchase.
