Sister Act - Alanna Mason and Mary Attard

Illustrations and Inspirations - David Allan and Lee Milroy

David Allan is an artist and illustrator based in Armidale. His illustration work has featured in numerous books since his first picture book; Two Tales from Russia was published in 2013. His illustrations have allowed him to display his enjoyment of myths, legends and the fantastical. David’s love of the traditional illustrations from the 1880s to the 1920s, the so called Golden Age of Illustration, is evident in his work.

Lee Milroy enjoys using mixed media in her paintings, concentrating on a traditional style of painting; she enjoys depicting horses, dogs, wildlife, especially birds, and other natural subjects such as flowers and landscapes. Lee has managed to combine her love of images with her skills in technology by creating graphics as part of her computer-based graphics business, Uralla Multi-Media, which also assists her in using and manipulating images as a basis for her art works.

"domicile" - Deborah Page

Deborah Page says the following about “Domicile”, an exhibition of her acrylic works on canvass. “I am fascinated by the intimacy of domestic objects and simple domestic interiors, awkward compositions and perspectives to reflect the tensions between the feminine reality and feminist expectations of modern life. The safety and comfort of the domestic world is an awkward contradiction.  A woman in Australia is more likely to be killed in her own home than anywhere else.”

No matter what time of year you visit, chances are there will be an event or festival in or around Armidale. Events not to be missed include the Autumn Festival, Flix in the Stix, Armidale International Film Festival and A Day On the Green. Other great annual events include Australia Day Festivals in each centre, Armidale Jockey Club's Autumn Racing Festival, Armidale Youth Orchestra Garden Party, New England Outdoor Expo and the NEGS Equestrian events.
