Amanda Penrose Hart's style illuminates the pleasures of painting and what the inert material itself is capable of, absorbing the experience of painting in-situ in the landscape.

Born in Brisbane in 1963 she holds a Diploma of Fine Art from Queensland College of Art and a Bachelor of Visual Art from Griffith University.

Penrose Hart has held over 20 solo exhibitions and has shown in many more group exhibitions. She regularly has work selected in prizes such as the Portia Geach Memorial Award (2011, 2008, 2007, 2006) and the En Plein Air Art Prize. In 2017 her painting 'The Sphinx, Perpetual Peace' won the Gallipoli Art Prize. 

Her work is represented in public and private collections including Australian National Maritime Museum, Sydney; Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, NSW; Brisbane Polo Club; Gold Coast City Art Gallery; Hawkesbury Regional Art Gallery, NSW; Redcliff Regional Gallery, Qld; Taronga Park Zoo, Sydney; and University of Sydney Art Collection.

No matter what time of year you visit, chances are there will be an event or festival in or around Armidale.

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.
