The year seems to have flown by and it is time for our final newsletter for the year. All of us here at Iltja Ntjarra would like to take this opportunity to wish every one of our supporters a festive Xmas and a safe and happy new year!

Iltja Ntjarra will be CLOSED from the 16.12.2019-06.01.2020.
This year's Desert Mob was a huge success with all four works entered being acquired by Araluen Art Centre. This is a huge honour for the artists and affirmation of their hard work and dedication. Congratulations Mervyn Rubuntja, Hubert Pareroultja, Gloria Pannka and Kathy Inkamala for a remarkable achievement.

Our Market day was also a huge success with record sales. It is encouraging to see our supporters are growing in numbers and appreciation for the Hermannsburg school movement expanding. 

Our artists Clara Inkamala, Mervyn Rubuntja and Gloria Pannka also participated in this year's Desert Mob symposium to talk about two major projects they has worked on this year. For more information you can read about them here and here

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to Araluen Art Centre and Desart for their tireless work in making this spectacular event possible, to be enjoyed and appreciated by so many. Kala Marra!

The exhibition Tjina Nurna-ka, Pmarra Nurna-kanha, Itla Itla Nurna-kanha: Our Family, Our Country, Our Legacy was the outcome of a twelve-month collaboration between Iltja Ntjarra/ Many Hands Art Centre and Flinders University Art Museum, which was championed by the Art Gallery of South Australia. The project supported Tarnanthi curator-in-residence Marisa Maher to curate an exhibition responding to the South Australian collection of historic watercolours by artists associated with Ntaria (Hermannsburg). In this image co-curators Marisa Maher and Nic Brown discuss the concepts behind the exhibition.
