The 2022 Annual Miniatures Arts Exhibition hosted at the Armidale Art Gallery. The art of the miniature is many hundreds of years old. In the Western world the earliest examples can be found in the illuminated capital letters of church manuscripts.
Today there is tremendous interest in the art form throughout the world and it encompasses many different mediums and subjects.
The definition for this Society for a 2-dimensional work is that the perimeter of the actual art work must not exceed 40cm and "the spirit of miniaturisation" must be maintained.
A three dimensional work must not exceed 15cm in any direction, and the front cover of a miniature book must have a perimeter of no more than 40cm.

New England's Tech Vision. When Armidale launched the NBN it was no surprise that this tech savvy community was awake to the opportunities.
New England producers built an online platform to trade livestock eight years before eBay was launched; created a global florist; designed sapflow meters; built software to teach children to read; and started weighing cattle in the paddock and digitising the earth's soil.
