So our Vice President Chris had an idea…. and this is what it’s become: a fabulous 9 x 5 Exhibition. We’ve held our first workshop and there’s still spaces available for the second workshop on Saturday 14 July, 1pm – 4pm. All local artists are invited to be part of this new exhibition.
By the craziest coincidence the opening night for our Exhibition (Friday 17 August 2018) is being held exactly 129 years since the opening night of the first 9 x 5, held on 17 August 1889 in Buxton’s Rooms, Swanston Street, Melbourne. That exhibition featured Tom Roberts, Charles Conder and Arthur Streeton.
HAS Workshop in action
We’ve got a great gang today for our second 9 x 5 Workshop – leading up to our Exhibition 14 – 26 August. Still plenty of time for you to get your entries in – entries close on Friday 3 August.
