Established in 1983, the New England Regional Art Museum in Armidale boasts six gallery spaces, a museum of printing, an audiovisual theatre, artist studio, Studio 52 Cafe and museum shop. With over 4500 works, the quality and size of the museum's valuable collections is unique among regional galleries in New South Wales, providing a cultural resource of national significance.
NERAM is the custodian of three important collections of Australian art- the Howard Hinton Collection, the Chandler Coventry Collection and the NERAM Collection. These collections include more than 4,500 works by Australian artists, such as Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts, Elioth Gruner, Margaret Preston and Brett Whiteley.
The annual calendar of exhibitions features works from the permanent collections, major art prizes and regional artists, as well as national touring shows from major galleries. The Packsaddle Selling Exhibition, featuring paintings and original prints by established and emerging artists from Sydney galleries, is a drawcard for art collectors every year.
