The A1 Darebin Art Salon 2020 is a celebration of art, creativity and expression within our community. Artists who live, work or study in the City of Darebin are invited to present a new artwork in this much loved biennial exhibition.

This is the third iteration of this major community art prize, featuring 106 works by talented local artists. In response to our gallery’s closure due to COVID-19, this year the exhibition is presented exclusively online. Community voting closed on Friday 4 September.
