About the exhibition

The Popular Pet Show will express the joy and warmth that many of us derive from our animal companions, and will celebrate their trusting, unpretentious ways.

Comprising exuberant recent Australian paintings, many on a large scale, it will include portraits of famous and obscure Australians and their pets by contemporary artists Nicholas Harding, Lucy Culliton, Darren McDonald, Anna Culliton, Fiona McMonagle, Ken Done, Noel McKenna, Graeme Drendel, Robyn Sweaney and Kristin Headlam. Many works have been created especially for the exhibition.

The Pet Show curator is Sarah Engledow, whose recent popular National Portrait Gallery exhibitions include Arcadia: Sound of the seaParis to Monaro: Pleasures from the studio of Hilda Rix Nicholas; and Idle Hours. A fully-illustrated catalogue, written by Dr Engledow, will accompany the high-spirited exhibition.

On show Friday 4 November 2016 until Monday 13 March 2017.
