9 by 5 Exhibition - calling for artworks

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.

You are invited to tap into the creativity on 9 by 5 inch art boards with all entries exhibited and available for sale at the exhibition. 

Purchase your art board today and start to create! To have your work exhibited, please return the completed work to the Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre by Wednesday 27 November.

Key Dates:

  • Return the completed works by Wednesday 27 November
  • Exhibition Dates: 5 December to 21 December
  • Exhibition Launch Event: 7 December, 2pm-4pm
