Arlpwe Art Gallery has a wonderful range of different paintings and authentic artifacts, including highly collectible artworks by the senior ladies.

Arlpwe Art & Culture Centre is comprised of an Aboriginal Art Gallery, two Art Centres and a Pottery Training Studio located 350km North of Alice Springs, Australia, in Ali Curung, a remote Aboriginal Community.

Owned and operated by the Arlpwe Artists Aboriginal Corporation, the centre promotes the artistic works of local artisans, including paintings, pottery and artefacts, in an effort to provide a method of telling traditional stories through the artwork, and in particular, keeping the culture of the region alive for future generations.
