Kaltjiti Arts and Crafts
Kaltjiti (Fregon), SA
Kaltjiti Arts and Crafts is a community-based art centre in Fregon in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands of South Australia. It is the heart of the small community and a place of inspiration, dynamism and cultural focus.
Through their artworks, elders and senior artists teach younger generations about important cultural traditions and stories, passing on knowledge learned from their ancestors.
Kaltjiti Arts is known for diversity of aesthetic and depth of talent. Senior male artists Witjiti George and Taylor Copper and senior women Manitjanu Lennon, Imitjala Curley, Matjangka Norris and Kathy Maringka all explore the region’s Tjukurpa (ancestral stories and law), as do emerging artists Ingrid Treacle, Gladys Roberts, Maria Curley and Pollyanne Smith. This commitment to Tjukurpa and traditional painting technique has allowed Kaltjiti Arts to establish a reputation for artworks of the highest quality and rich in cultural integrity.
