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 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, 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.

The sale of our art boards is closed.
