Tangentyere Artists - Alice Springs
Tangentyere Artists is an Aboriginal art centre renowned for its paintings and local seed jewellery, which is produced by over 400 town camp residents.
The styles of work produced at Tangentyere Artists are varied and reflect the cultural diversity of its artists, who represent over 20 Central Australian languages.
You will see acrylic paintings on canvas as well as painted recycled metal objects and wooden surfaces that depict traditional motifs through to highly contemporary modern depictions of life.
Tangentyere Artists make handcrafted jewellery from recycled everyday objects found in and around the town camps. Recycled tin lids and beer bottle tops are hammered and shaped, then painted and varnished. The artists also recycle tobacco tins and other objects into miniature works of art.
Don their distinctive jewellery and support the art centre, which is dedicated to improving social justice and maintaining the traditional cultures of town camp residents through its art support, arts training and workshops and marketing services.
Tangentyere Artists is owned and directed by the Tangentyere Council. It is located in Alice Springs at the council headquarters.
