First Fridays

FIRST FRIDAYS


We are firing up Friday night at the Art Gallery by staying open after hours on the first Friday of every month. Hear great talks, unwind to live music and take in the latest exhibitions and displays.

Think of the Gallery as a launch pad for your weekend; have a bite to eat and something to drink at Art Gallery Food Wine, browse in the Gallery Store and immerse yourself in art and culture with an amazing mix of eclectic characters – then lose yourself in the city as you head off to other gigs, shows and events.

When The first Friday of every month, 5-9pm
Where Art Gallery of South Australia
Cost Free admission. Charges may apply for special exhibitions or events.
Enquiries Call 08 8207 7000 or email agsainformation@artgallery.sa.gov.au
