Academy Elected Artists

Over its 127 years, we have seen many of the country's top artists exhibit in our Galleries. Anyone can submit work to the Academy for selection. Annually, the Academy Council may acknowledge the consistent quality of particular artists' work and their involvement with the Academy by electing them to "Elected Artist" status.


Artist member Eric Heath 'Pukeko Portraits' acrylic
