Lower Midlands Collection
The Lower Midlands Collection aims to celebrate the Southern Midlands and its artists through a collection of artworks either developed by artists from the region or artworks depicting or representing the region. From an original collection of eight works, the collection has grown over the years to consist of 27 pieces with artworks either being bought by the Collection or loaned to the collection by artists.
Artwork can be leased on an annual basis by organisations or individuals for a modest fee of $50 for the year. Artwork is returned to the collection at the end of the leasing period (30 June each year) for re-lease the following year at an exhibition of the collection. This gives people and organisations the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful piece of art for the year and lease a different piece for the following year.
To make the collection more widely available and due to Coronavirus restrictions which have limited gatherings, the 2020-21 leasing will be made available online through the Lower Midlands Arts Facebook page and this website.
The Annual cost for leasing an artwork is still $50 and works are available for lease from 1 July 2020. If you would like to lease an artwork, please look though the attached catalogue, select your preferred piece and contact Carolyn Bassett via email at or phone 0412903944 to arrange leasing and payment. We hope you enjoy participating in this initiative.
