Elected Artist Reveal - 2021

An exhibition showing a selection of specially curated works by 10 Academy members who have been invited to Elected Artist status, an accolade within the Academy’s honours system.  Each artist has displayed a consistently high standard of work, along with support of the Academy, for a considerable period of time to achieve this recognition.  Visit now for a sneak peak to see the awarded artists’ works; painters Peter Augustin, Charlotte Hird, Tatyana Kulida, John McDonnell, Lee Russell, mosaic artist Jane Santos, Denis Slowley, George Thompson, sculptor Lynne Wakem, and jeweller Sue Shore.


Sitting along side this exhibition is another wonderful celebration by eight of the Academy’s Life Members and Fellows - some of the nation’s best contemporary artists.  Many of the works, from fine porcelain and pottery, sculpture and painting, have been lent by private collectors or are from the artists' own personal collections.
