The Art Centre is situated in the township of Alice Springs and has been established to provide a place for Western Arunda Artists to come together to paint, share and learn new techniques and ideas.
Ngurratjuta Many Hands has a special focus on encouraging the ˜Hermannsburg School’ style watercolour artists, who continue to paint in the tradition of their grandfather and relative, Albert Namatjira, arguably one of Australia’s most famous artists of the 20th century. Albert Namatjira taught his children to follow in his unique style, who have since passed this knowledge on to their children, which has resonated in a legacy of watercolour artists in the Central Desert region. By continuing his legacy, these artists sustain an important piece of living history.
MEET THE ARTISTS
Artists paint on site on Mondays to Thursdays between 10am to 3pm (between two and six artists).
