The Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre’s 9 by 5 Exhibition has become a nationally recognised art event. With over 270 artworks being displayed on the gallery wall, this open-entry exhibition 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, celebrating its 15th year in 2020, 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 to support artists and would make a very special gift for the festive season.
