9 by 5 Exhibition

Share your creativity and be part of the 9 by 5 Exhibition

Thursday 3 December 2020 – Saturday 23 January 2021

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. 

We are proud to share these innovative works with you and excited to welcome you back to the Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre.   

In order to protect your health and wellbeing, please note the following before entering:  

  • Opening hours: 12pm – 3pm on Tuesdays to Fridays. 
  • Maximum capacity: 20 visitors in door at one time. Waiting time may occur for entering.

  • Please use the sanitiser on arrival.

  • If you are unwell, please do not visit.  

All exhibited works will be available for sale to support artists and would make a very special gift for the festive season. We look forward to seeing you in the gallery.
