Spot the Dog: Canine Companions in Art is the latest exhibition celebrating Carrick Hill’s thirtieth anniversary of public opening. The exhibition is now open and will be on show through until 30 June 2017. Sourced from public and private collections, including the Art Gallery of South Australia and the David Roche Foundation, the exhibition will include paintings, photographs, decorative art and books which showcase the dog as a close companion and unsuspecting model.From the Hayward’s beloved Great Danes, Woodley and Witchet, to today’s visitors enjoying the grounds with their family pets, dogs are a common sight on the Carrick Hill grounds.Associate Curator of the exhibition Anna Jug said: “The dog has always been welcome at Carrick Hill. The Haywards were great dog lovers and it is fitting that a show dedicated to the display of dogs in art should feature during this year of celebration.’’The exhibition will be accompanied by a new ‘Walk the Dog’ trail throughout the Carrick Hill grounds.For a gold coin donation patrons are invited to walk the sign posted trail with their dogs and mark off the breeds on the signs on a checklist provided. On completion each owner and dog will receive a treat.For the chance to win a ticket to the Spot the Dog exhibition, enter here. email:firstname.lastname@example.org in the subject add the prize name and remember to leave your name, address and phone number.
