THINGS TO DO IN MARLA

 

Iwantja Arts Centre
 

To protect the people of the APY Lands, access is restricted to the most areas west of the highway and north of Marla, although there is unrestricted access to the community of Indulkana when visiting the Iwantja Arts Centre,  the work place of talented Aboriginal artists exhibiting and selling paintings, bags, and baskets world-wide. Indulkana community lies 5 miles west of the Stuart Highway, about half an hour north of Marla, at the foot of an escarpment.

Iwantja Arts has a rich history of printmaking, with many of the first limited edition prints now held in the collections of the South Australian Museum and National Gallery of Australia. Printmaking continues to be a fundamental art form, with studio artists producing work in both relief and intaglio mediums.

Today the art centre continues to support innovative studio artists working across a variety of mediums, encompassing both individual and collaborative contemporary arts practice. Artworks from Iwantja Arts are held in many private and public collections throughout Australia and internationally.
