Summer might be winding down, but you can make the most of the remaining balmy evenings as Art Month Sydney kicks off a citywide celebration of contemporary art. The ninth annual festival is painting the town red (and every other colour) with exhibitions, workshops, talks, tours and — whip out your calendars — the much-loved Precinct Nights. Yep, galleries are keeping their doors open late across different parts of the city each Thursday (and the last Friday) in March, which means you can embark on a curated walking tour of local exhibitions, then round off the evening with an Art at Night Party. Dust off your multi-purpose walking/dancing shoes, and prepare for an art-venture.
Art at Night in Paddington, Woollahra and Darlinghurst on March 8 invites you to visit a whole host of galleries staying open from 6–8pm, including Piermarq, Janet Clayton Gallery, Sabbia Gallery, Dickerson Gallery, Cooee Art Gallery, Arthouse Gallery and Australian Centre for Photography. Once your art-appetite is feeling adequately sated, dance your way down Oxford Street to the National Art School in Darlinghurst, which will be buzzing from 8pm with performances, interventions and a pop-up bar.
Art Month Sydney runs March 1–25, 2018. Find out more information and download a precinct map here.
