|Kaltjiti Arts is a community based aboriginal art centre located at Fregon (Kaltjiti Community) in the remote north-west of South Australia on the freehold Anangu Pitjantjatjara / Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands. The main focus of the centre is the provision of resources and development of opportunities for its artist members. Artistic integrity, cultural maintenance and promotion of sustainable economic development through the arts reflect the core values of the centre.|
The artists of Kaltjiti Arts produce paintings as the primary art form. Limited edition prints are an additional medium. Wood carving and fibre weaving are individual artist activities supported through the centre. The artistic styles at Kaltjiti Arts are varied and explore many different expressions of mark making that translate and are inspired by the surrounding arid landscape that is rich with colour, form, and embedded with ancient stories of the region.
Some of the art centre’s senior artists are represented in national collections, including Artbank, National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of South Australia, the Berndt Collection WA, Flinders University Art Museum; along with various private collections.
|Kaltjiti Arts has both senior and emerging artists. Among them are:|
