YARRENYTY ARLTERE ARTISTS Exhibition
The Yarrenyty Arltere Artists exhibition will be at the Edwina Corlette Gallery. The works are a collection from the Yarrenyty Arltere Learning Centre situated at the Larapinta Valley Town Camp at the base of Mt Gillen in Alice Springs. The centre was introduced as a safe space away from the extreme poverty, overcrowding and social issues that afflicted the remote town, and provide the town camp’s residents with new skills and opportunities in an area with little access to work or education. Especially noted for their soft sculptures made from recycled woollen blankets hand-dyed with local plants and rusted metal, the Yarrenyty Arltere artists create works that reveal the stories and experiences of generations of town camp residents.
