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

Alongside a large number of practising artists, elected artist members are entitled to enter an extra work into Academy exhibitions. They can also be invited to be part of the selection committee or special exhibitions.
