Exhibition dates: 24 March - 14 May

One of the oldest friends of humans, and one of the earliest animals depicted in art, the dog has been a constant throughout human history.

The dog may be the star of the show, or a silent body in the background, symbolising protection, loyalty or generosity. This exhibition highlights the range of portrayals of the humble dog by Australian artists, featuring paintings, drawings and sculpture.
