Beneath the canvas
Home to many of Australia’s highest profile visual artists and the heart of the western desert
painting movement, Tjala Arts is widely recognised as an Art Centre where an unwavering
commitment to the traditional values of holding and celebrating Tjukurpa, motivate the pursuit of artistic excellence.
Described by Senior Law woman Nyurpaya Kaika as the ‘true heart of Amata Community’ Tjala
Arts is located at the base of the Musgrave ranges in the beautiful Anangu Pitjantjatjara
Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands, South Australia.
This vivid collection of stories and artworks allows a unique and exquisite insight into the
individual and family histories which make the Tjala Arts story so important in the nation’s cultural landscape.
