‘With less than three weeks to go before the opening of the exhibition, JOHN OLSEN: The City’s Son, at the Newcastle Art Gallery, the Newcastle Art Gallery Foundation has announced a special opportunity for the people of Newcastle to be involved in this unique venture – a collaboration between the artist, the Gallery and Foundation and the city which was his childhood home and inspiration.

This is your chance to be one of only six successful ticket holders to be a guest at John Olsen’s studio in the Southern Highlands to meet the artist, have a peek into his studio and enjoy lunch together. This is a rare opportunity indeed. Only one hundred tickets are being made available to the public and to Foundation and Art Gallery Society members.

The tickets can be purchased on the Foundation’s website or at the Gallery.

The ticket price of $250 includes transport, refreshments along the way, and exclusive access to John Olsen and his work. The 6 winners will be announced at the opening of the exhibition JOHN OLSEN: The City’s Son on 4th November 2016. The studio visit is scheduled for early February 2017.
