Summer Exhibition

18 February - 19 March 2017

Academy Members Summer Show.

This Summer Exhibition opens the arts calendar for the Academy in 2017 and also represents the first members’ show for the year.

Members’ Exhibitions have been an historical part of the art calendar since the Academy was founded. In March 1883 an ‘interim survey’ exhibition was held to evaluate the quality of the members’ work, and in April the first exhibition was held in the Lyon Blair store in Hunter Street and featured many exhibits.

This Summer Exhibition highlights 144 works and continues to show the diverse and intriguing objects of art that can be found at the Academy some 134 years later.




25 March - 23 April 2017

An exhibition featuring invited NZ artists as well as some Academy members.


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