Tangentyere Artists is an Art Centre based in Alice Springs and is increasingly becoming known for the figurative paintings with textual references; reflections of everyday life in the Aboriginal Housing Associations known collectively as Alice Springs Town Camps. Tangentyere Artists is a vibrant and dynamic art centre belonging to the town camp residents of Alice Springs. The studio work space is open and welcoming, providing artists a place of respite from the intensity of some Town Camps, a contemplative place to work and create and elevate. Through the creation of recycled metal jewellery and painted found objects, seed jewellery, painted wooden panels and acrylic on canvas, artists create classical as well as quirky and off beat art objects. Tangentyere Artists strives to develop community partnerships and new opportunities for artists, finding ways of communicating to broad audiences the experience and perspectives of the town camp artists. The art service empowers individual town camp residents beyond the everyday so they are able to achieve collectively what they could not do individually. The art centre provides a platform from which artists can express themselves, their lives and cultural values, while enriching their community well being and family livelihoods.
