Directed by descendants and kin relatives of Albert Namatjira, Iltja Ntjarra (Many Hands) Art Centre is proud to keep the Hermannsburg watercolour tradition strong for future generations. Encompassing the epic sites of Rutjimpa (Mt Sonder), Kwartatuma (Orminston Gorge), Yapalpa (Glen Helen) and Marlanginja (Palm Valley) to the south, our country continues to drive our creative expression today.
