Every once in a while community radio stations like ours can achieve what mainstream radio stations cannot, and this week the Arts About team have managed a coup of sorts.

Sally will be talking to Andrew Sayers, who not only was the inagural Director of the National Portrait Gallery for 12 years and Director of the Australian Museum, he has revealed, after moving to Melbourne in 2013 from his home and work in Canberra, a secret and parallel life as a painter.

Last year he entered and was accepted as a finalist in the Doug Moran National Portrait prize with a no holds barred self portrait, and this year he was a finalist in the Archibald Prize with a portrait of art historian and Environmental lawyer Tim Bonyhady.

Join them this Sunday, 2 August at 11am when they discuss, portraiture, the Archibald Prize, coming out as a painter, and because he is now really a Melbourner, football teams.

The interview will be repeated Wednesday, 5 August at 12noon
