Local creatives who have entered the 9 by 5 Exhibition will have their skilled artworks on display at the Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre from Tuesday 18 April–Friday 7 July.
Celebrating its 16th year, the 9 by 5 Exhibition in Greater Dandenong commemorates an original 1889 exhibition held in Melbourne. The original exhibition featured the works of well-known artists Tom Roberts, Charles Condor, Arthur Streeton and Frederick McCubbin, where they created works on 9 by 5 inch cigar tin lids.
In Council’s 9 by 5 Exhibition artists have created their work on a small board measuring nine by five inches, using a range of mediums and styles.
Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre's adaptation has become a nationally recognised exhibition that celebrates diversity within the arts community, proving that small things can have a big impact. This year’s exhibition hosts over 250 works.
Artworks on display will be for sale and are a great and affordable way to support artists and build your art collection.
You are welcome to attend the exhibition opening event on Saturday 22 April from 2pm–4pm. You can also vote in the People’s Choice Award for your favourite artist. Both the chosen artist and voter will win a prize.
Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre is open Tuesday–Friday from 12pm - 4pm. Entry to the gallery is free.
