Nocturnal creatures and art lovers, get on down to the National Art School this Thursday night for a free after-dark shindig. From 6pm, for three hours, you'll be able to wander through the Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize, while sipping on wine and listening to live music.
Adding to the adventure, NAS are running a tour through the grounds kicking off at 6.30pm, which will fill you in on the school's fascinating history — including its former incarnation as Darlinghurst Gaol. Then, from 7.30pm, you'll be hearing from a bunch of artists, including 2016 Emerging Art Prize winner Jack Lanagan Dunbar, as well as Rosie Deacon, Francesca Heinz and Shane Haseman.
This event is just one in the 2016 NAS nights series. "NAS Nights is a welcome opportunity for curious newcomers together with seasoned art-lovers to enjoy a great exhibition of contemporary artwork, engage with artists, and hear live music in a relaxed, convivial evening setting," says curator Judith Blackall.
