A4 Art Australia 2021
CAW members are invited to participate in Victoria’s Contemporary Art Society’s eighth annual A4 Art Australia exhibition — showing from 6 March to 5 April 2021.
The exciting news is that the exhibition will be open to the public at the Herring Island Art Gallery for an extended period of 5 weekends including Labour Day 8 March, Good Friday, 2 April, Easter Monday, 5 April.
Each year this exhibition has grown and proven to be popular with the public, with high visitor numbers over the exhibition duration and many sales. This year we will be adding an online ‘e-shop’ for artwork sales, making it even easier for art-lovers to buy your work! Artworks will be held by us and available for online sales for 3 months after the end of the physical exhibition. The exhibition is widely promoted with printed invitations, advertisements in Art Almanac, public signboards, and social media — Facebook, Instagram& Twitter.
What is A4 Art Australia?
A4 Art Australia is an exhibition of A4-sized artworks, hence the title. This exhibition showcases A4-sized artworks by both established and emerging contemporary artists and offers all participating artists the opportunity to gain exposure for their art at low entry cost. By having a theme of A4 sized artworks, artists from all over Australia have an opportunity to submit works via Australia Post.

Contemporary artists are invited to submit up to four (4) A4-sized artworks for the exhibition.
