21 April – 21 May 2023

On May 6 2023 King Charles III will be crowned. The Academy has invited artists to submit fine artworks for this special exhibition to mark the Coronation and continue a long tradition of artists commemorating moments in history.

To mark Charles III’s naval career, and his rank of Admiral of the Fleet of the Royal New Zealand Navy, the Academy has invited the RNZN to display artworks of ‘His Majesty’s New Zealand Ships’. Paintings by the official RNZN artist LTCDR Colin Wynn include HMNZS Wellington during a voyage to Antarctica and HMNZS Monowai’s dramatic rescue during the 1994 Auckland to Tonga race.

Monowai Rescue by Colin Wynn                                           

Featured artists at this exhibition are Fellow of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts Philip Markham and Academy Life Member Jenny Shearer.  Philip Markham’s series of medieval, heraldry-inspired illuminations are set in the sumptuous, previous, Carolean era of Charles II. His works are resplendent in gold and silver, with kings on thrones, women in their finery and pennants billowing in the wind. Jenny Shearer’s collection of ceramics for royal occasions includes goblets, platters, jugs, banquet bowls, Maids of Honour candlesticks and King and Queen teapots. The exhibition includes artworks of 68 practising artist members of the Academy of Fine Arts. These are exciting new works in all media.

To date, Colin has completed over 100 works in his role as Navy artist.
