Solo 43

3 November - 14 December 2017

It’s an exciting time at the Academy and we hope you can join us! We have a special guest, a big announcement and great art on the walls.

We’re celebrating the life and work of one of the Academy’s most eminent artists  with the 2017 Governor-General Art Award. It’s eight years since the award was last presented. Her Excellency The Rt Hon Dame Patsy Reddy will personally announce and present the Award to the winning artist.

We are also opening Solo 43, and showcasing works by some of our best artists.

So it really is an event not to be missed.



9 December - 17 December 2017

New works by Di Conway and Debbie Pointon.

This joint show features Di’s fabulous ladies and a great selection of bronzes – lots of fun in all respects. Debbie presents her own ceramic works blending past and present to create pieces that reflect what “I‘m Glorious’ is.  She also has a fantastic selection of her box art assemblages.

At the Academy Galleries until 18 December, open daily from 10 am.



Summer Cash and Carry

19 December - 13 February 2018

Our Summer exhibition runs from mid December until mid February 2018. It is a cash and carry – a format that has consistently proven successful for everybody. The exhibition is unthemed with all types, genres & styles present.

We’re hoping the city will be filled with last minute Christmas shoppers and holiday makers over the summer period which includes Wellington Anniversary weekend, Chinese New Year and a long Waitangi weekend break.

We now have a mailing list for people interested in our newsletters, exhibition programme and special offers.
