What’s On: Australia Late at The National Gallery
There’s only one way to spend your Friday night this week and that’s at The National Gallery’s Australia Late. To celebrate Australia Day, they’re putting on an evening of activities inspired by Australia’s Impressionists. Alongside the exhibitions there’s all sorts of things you can do that encompass music and art. Including learning new drawing skills, enjoy live musical performances by the Australian Music foundation and even a landscape quilting workshop – but to name a few.
REVL’s top tip: Word on the street is that there’s a secret bar that’s full of Aesop goodies waiting to be found. But how do you find it? Check the Facebook event at 6pm on Friday and all will be revealed.
Australia’s Impressionists | Sunley Room
Dream of summer in the middle of winter and escape the darkness for the light-filled landscapes of the Australian Impressionists. In the first exhibition of its kind in the UK, it showcases four impressionist artists. You’ll see the work of Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton, Charles Conder, and John Russell and are invited to reconsider how impressionism was understood at the time. Running until 27th March 2017.
Buy tickets on the door or online here.
You can also participate in a drop in drawing session in an artist-led session, listen to DJ Liz O’Sullivan’s electric boogaloo beats in Aesop’s secret bar and bundle all of your mates into the photo booth to take some mementos of the night.
You definitely won’t be short of things to do at the Australia Late – it’s the perfect way to celebrate Australia Day and a chance to explore the amazing exhibitions and activities The National Gallery have got on offer.
All of these events can be found on the Australia Late PLAYlist on REVL. Follow it and make sure you’re up to date with everything HERE.
