June 2017: In celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Victorian College of the Arts (an amalgamation of The National Gallery School and Prahran Faculty of Art), Bill has been selected as one of the VCA’s ’eminent student alumni and staff members’ to exhibit in a contemporary iteration of the infamous ‘9 x 5 Impressionist Exhibition’ of 1889. The seven artists in that exhibition, all alumni, were Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton, Frederick McCubbin and Charles Conder, C Douglas Richardson, R.E. Falls and Herbert Daly, who used 9′ x 5′ cedar cigar box lids on which to paint. The exhibition will mirror the format of the original exhibition meaning all works will be on a 9 x 5 inch board.

The exhibition will take place at the VCA’s Margaret Lawrence Gallery in June 2017.
