9 by 5 Exhibition

9 by 5 exhibition

Come along and join us at the exhibition launch event on Saturday 7 December from 2pm to 4pm.  The 9 by 5 Exhibition opens until Saturday 21 December.

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 and would make ideal Christmas gifts. This year you don’t need to wait until the end of the exhibition to collect the purchased works – simply buy and go home with your favourite artworks.


Entries for this year are closed on Wednesday 27 November.
