Illustrators Australia: Grow

6th December - 16th December 2019

Opening: Friday 6th December 2019 at 6:00pm

Viewing Until: Monday 16th December 2019 4:00pm

Keep Going. Keep Growing.


We’ve come a long way together, and we’ve only just begun! We changed, evolved and continue to shape IA over the last 30 years to become who we are today. Great things take time to grow.

Illustrators Australia's much loved 9x5 Exhibition returns for another year and this year is very special. It’s our birthday. So we’re taking it back to where it all began to The Victorian Artists Society, once again paying homage to the Heidelberg School's famous paintings on little wooden cigar boxes with this years’ theme- ‘Grow’.

So ‘Grow’ with us, as we celebrate 30 years of supporting Illustrators and helping each other grow professionally and creatively. Show us what it means to ‘Grow’. We’ll leave the interpretation to you.

Be brave, be bold, bloom and ‘Grow’.

Save the Date
