Academy Galleries

130 years: A long and proud history

Elected Artist Showcase

Long serving members are honoured with Life membership and artist members who have served the Academy and made a significant contribution to the arts nationally are also honoured by the Governor-General Art Award, by which the artist becomes a Fellow of the Academy. 

The Academy annually reviews new Elected Artist candidates whose names have been put forward because of consistent high standards of work and 
regular support of the Academy. After a selection process the successful artists become Elected Artists of the Academy, and an exhibition showcasing their work is held.
