Kaltjiti Arts 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 techniques has allowed Kaltjiti Arts to establish a reputation for artworks of the highest quality and rich in cultural integrity.

 Visitors are welcome by arrangement with the art centre. Permits are required when visiting the APY Lands, this information can be obtained by the art centre or the APY Lands website. Please contact the art centre well in advance.
