Visitors are welcome to Keringke Arts, an Aboriginally owned and operated community art centre in the community of Ltyentye Apurte, also known as Santa Teresa, approximately one hour’s drive from Alice Springs. Kerinkge is named for a nearby rock hole, formed as an ancestral kangaroo travelled through the region. Several of Kerinkge’s artists have cultural responsibilities associated with the rock hole site.
The art centre sprang from a 9-week fabric painting course held in 1987. The following year the women of Ltyentye Apurte – Santa Teresa, held an exhibition at the Australian Bicentennial Craft Show, the first Aboriginal art centre to do so. Keringke quickly became an influential model for Aboriginal art centres in the region. Since then, Keringke has flourished and is now a vital component of the cultural, social and economic fabric of the community.
A wide range of beautiful products are available, prized for its signature Keringke Arts style, including textiles, paintings, bowls, vases and unique ceramics.
