Lucy Culliton

The Easter Show

5 March - 30 March, 2024

Each year, Lucy Culliton sets off from her home and menagerie of animals in the Monaro to make the five-hour drive to Sydney’s Royal Easter Show.

A long-time fan and the official artist in residence, since 2022, Lucy criss-crosses the grounds of the Royal Easter Show, observing and revelling in the beauty of the festival.

‘The Easter Show’ is a celebration of drawings, gouaches and oils capturing the essence of The Show as only Lucy’s observational acuity can gather. Encompassing the gauntlet of the fair’s offerings from cake baking, tea cosy knitting, rodeo, wood chopping and animal-judging, no part of The Show has been left unrepresented – no human or animal ignored by the pencil or brush.
