Art After Dark at the Newport Art Museum returns on Thursday, May 10 from 5 to 9 p.m. Each Art After Dark has a unique lineup for the whole family. This event joins the ranks of the many events and educational programs that the Museum currently offers in its galleries at 76 Bellevue Avenue, Newport. Admission to Art After Dark is free for Museum members and is a suggested donation of $ 10 for non-members.
This month, Art After Dark says “YES, you can! Visitors are invited to explore the newly preserved permanent collection pieces on display in the museum’s Damon Gallery, enjoy the music-filled museum as we host the 3rd annual year-end spring concert by student musicians and accomplished singers from Portsmouth Abbey School; and magical performances of the original miniature Victorian-style Toy Theater “The Clockmaker” by Newport artists Rupert Nesbitt and Rebecca Kelly in the library. Museum Art School instructor Peter Dickison will lead hands-on painting demonstrations in the gallery where guests can learn basic oil painting techniques. Like every Art After Dark month, gallery games, refreshments and a cash bar will be available.
Held on the second Thursday of each month, Art After Dark offers art programs, lectures, film screenings, gallery games, music, drinks and inspired conversations. Each Art After Dark is unique and full of new adventures. Spend an evening at Art After Dark: Gallery games, artistic creation, light snacks, a cash bar and a sparkling conversation await!
