NGV Art Of Dining 2019

You may remember that last year VCA Access facilitated one of our students, Janno McLaughlin, to participate in NGV’s The Art of Dining 2019 which is to be held on the 1st May 2019.

Art of Dining brings together 44 spectacular tables designed by Australia’s leading artists, interior designers, couturiers, florists, stylists and retailers.  A stellar line up of creatives are generously donating their rare and wonderful talent including 2018 VCA Master’s student Janno McLaughlin, Flack Studio, Craft Victoria, Flowers Vasette, Hecker Guthrie and many more. It truly is a  must for design aficionados!

Janno has drawn her inspiration for the table design from her interpretation of the hero image and imaginings of Le Bal Oriental, Cleopatra, love, betrayal, Egyptian Mythology, Venice, luxurious excess, masked banquets, the 1953 Elizabeth Taylor Cleopatra movie and its exotic costumes.  She is also embracing the ambience of the NGV’s Great Hall.

Tables are offered for sale in stages, first to the designers and then to guests of each table captain.  Any remaining tickets available for sale not taken up by these 2 groups are then offered to the general public.

We are lucky to be able to offer members the opportunity to purchase a seat at the VCA Access table before these seats are offered to the general public.  We have 10 tickets on offer. Please email us at for more information.
