We are mixing it up this month for Third Thursday with DJ Nadia Reid in the gallery! As the weather cools down, the atmosphere is heating up, as we move into the foyer for the winter months. Explore the gallery while listening to Nadia Reid’s curated DJ set, sip a cocktail from our gin bar and enjoy some iconic Patti’s and Cream Food Truck cuisine or delicious sweet treats from Nova Café. Back by popular demand, the cashless trade table will once again be offering up bountiful goods... There will be craft activities for all ages and the gallery shop will have a special sale table. All galleries will be open until 8pm. [Eftpos available for the bar, Food Truck & Nova Café.]
