Directed by descendants and relatives of Albert Namatjira, Iltja Ntjarra / Many Hands Art Centre is proud to keep the watercolour tradition of the Hermannsburg art movement strong for future generations. The Hermannsburg watercolour art movement has grown steadily over the past 80 years, and members of Iltja Ntjarra Art Centre currently support the sixth generation of Western Aranda artists.
A group of vibrant men and women, emerging and established artists, come together to paint, sing and enjoy creative activity together. The artists work on national and international exhibitions. They paint landscapes of their beloved West MacDonnell Ranges using diverse techniques and mediums. The centre is renowned for its scenic watercolour paintings on paper as well as its innovative projects, including the 1950s-style landscape circle skirts installation and the permanent landscape mural in Alice Springs.
