VAS Gallery invites Victorian Artists to join our inaugural 9x5 Exhibition running from 27 May to 12 June 2023.
The original iconic impressionism exhibition in 1889 was organised and featured paintings by VAS artists Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts and Charles Conder, who painted on cigar box lids 9 by 5 inches in size.
Paying homage to this important part of Victorian art history, we invited artists from across Victoria in all mediums and styles to put their own spin on the 9x5 legacy.
Entry into this 2023 exhibition was open to all artists across Victoria.
