More information

Tapatjatjaka Art and Craft is located in a small Aboriginal community, about 107 kilometres from Alice Springs. Inspired by their striking environment, characterised by red sand hills and desert oaks, the artists create colourful paintings and intriguing wire creations that include animal and bird representations. These inventive sculptures of wire, metal and discarded bits and pieces have been exhibited both nationally and Internationally.

A purpose built gallery is an exciting addition to the art centre precinct in 2007. Displays include the painted works of both emerging and well known artists. View ceramics, jewellery, prints and punu (wooded artefacts) handicrafted by the local Arrente, Luritja, Pitjanjatjara and Yunkunyatjara artists.
