District residents are reminded to start working on their entries for this year’s Heathcote 9 x 5 Exhibition.
The event draws its inspiration from the 9 by 5 impression exhibition in 1889, which included works by prominent Heidelberg School artists Tom Roberts and Arthur Streeton, most of which were painted on cigar box lids.
The exhibition’s theme is Heathcote and submissions should reflect what Heathcote means to each artist.
All styles and mediums are welcome, including, but not limited to, textiles, patchwork, written word, painting, pastel, drawing, woodwork, prints and photographs.
The only requirement is the finished work must measure 23cm by 13cm and can be hung.
Preferably the works will be unframed, but framed items must not be larger than 32cm by 23cm.
Entry is free and boards are available for $2 from the Heathcote residents hub if needed.
Completed work can be dropped off at the hub from September 1 to 5 and at the art gallery, enter through the library door, on September 9, from 9am to 2pm.
For details, email Heathcote Artists at email@example.com, phone Judy Hutchins on 0407
The show is open September 16 to October 5.
