ARTIST Kellie O’Dempsey has been inviting National Gallery of Australia visitors into her living sketchbook since June, and next week in the gallery’s “NGA Play” space, she’ll be performing there for the last time and will be joined by dancers from the Australian Dance Party.

The exhibition itself continues until October 28.

“The never-ending line”,  NGA Play area, National Gallery of Australia, 6pm-8pm, Friday, August 3. Free for children under 15 but bookings are essential to
