More than 100 established and emerging artists will showcase their skills within a small 'canvas' at Australian Galleries in Collingwood. The artists contributed up to six works of a maximum size of 25cm for the 'large exhibition of small works' show.

The works paintings, prints, ceramics, and sculptures - will be displayed from 23 November to 18 December.

The pre-Christmas timing is excellent; art makes a great gift for the person who has 'everything'.

Well-known artists in the show include John Wolseley, Inge King, G.W. Bot, Peter Churcher, Lewis Miller, and Jeffrey Smart. Works by the late Sidney Nolan, Arthur Boyd, and Lloyd Rees will also be included.

Mid career artists in the show include Fleur Rendell, who produces prints inspired by nature and the domestic sphere from her studio in Victoria's Warby Ranges.

First Set of Wheels, Fleur Rendell, $350


Old Friend, Fleur Rendell, $350


The small format is reminiscent of the Linden Postcard Show but, unlike it, all artists are represented by Australian Galleries rather than being drawn from the public at large.

Australian Galleries is a family business established in 1956 which now has six galleries, four in Victoria and two in New South Wales. The show will be held in the gallery at 35 Derby St, Collingwood, which originally housed the family's former business, a factory producing clothing patterns.
