In 1877 he exhibited with the Auckland Society of Arts. He exhibited with the Canterbury Society of Arts from 1881 and the NZ Academy of Fine Arts 1895-1899.
Atcherley usually painted Maori subjects. In 1898 he exhibited a watercolour with Auckland Society of Arts showing a New South Wales subject suggesting he had possibly been in Australia prior to this date.
