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.
Our 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. The exhibition runs until Friday 7 July.
You are welcome to 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.
