Lower Midlands Arts (LMA) is a group previously known as the Greater Green Ponds Branch Tasmanian Regional Arts (TRA) and was launched on Saturday 15th of July 2017 at a bonfire at Lauriston, Kempton.

The Lower Midlands Arts vision is to promote and support the arts in the Southern Midlands region through offering a wide range of events and workshops to suit the varied tastes of our membership. 

Lower Midlands Arts also administers the Lower Midlands Collection - a collection of artworks that aims to celebrate the Southern Midlands and its artists with works by local artists or artworks representing the local area.  The artworks of this collection are available to organisations and individuals to lease on an annual basis.

Kempton Artlands Exhibition

Artlands is an exhibition that focuses on the Southern Midlands area.  It is held annually at Dysart House and is supported by the Old Kempton Distillery and the Southern Midlands Council.

Artworks are all for sale and are exhibited during September.  Since 2017 a "feature artist" has been invited to exhibit as well as the general exhibition.  Feature artists have included the late Stephen Walker (sculptor), Merinda Young (glass artist) and Lynne Hasenkam (ceramist).

The 2021 Kempton Artlands Exhibition will run from 19th September to 17th October 2021 and will be open daily from 10am to 4pm.
