Abstract

The New England Regional Art Gallery and Museum (NERAM) in the Australian regional city of Armidale is the custodian of the Howard Hinton Collection. This impressive collection of Australian art was initially bequeathed to the Armidale Teachers College, the first teachers’ college outside of a metropolitan center in Australia. Hinton wanted the artworks to be hung throughout the College so that the teacher education students could physically encounter and engage with them on a daily basis. Regional art galleries are often the cultural heart of communities who have been long-term and passionate advocates for their continued existence. This article explores the particular challenges and highlights of working in a regional gallery through three interviews conducted with the Director, the Exhibitions and Curatorial Manager, and the Education Officer. The findings reveal the importance of historical context, lived experience, the expectations of a regional community, and the value of art in contributing to the legacy of quality art education that Hinton established beyond the Metropolis.
