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

ARTlands at the Church is an annual event held by Lower Midlands Arts at St Mary's Church Kempton each year.  Originally held at Dysart House as the ARTlands Exhibition, the event was moved to St Mary's Church in Kempton in 2022 when Dysart House no longer had capacity to house this popular exhibition. Now held over a weekend, the exhibition contains high quality works from Tasmanian artists that can be purchased over the weekend.  A pop up cafe is run out of the Church Hall to give visitors a chance to wander around the exhibition at a leisurely pace, enjoy a refreshment and catch up with friends.
