Keringke Arts is a working art studio environment providing a direct sale outlet close to Alice Springs for original, colourful and vibrant artworks. The Keringke style is very distinctive .

Eastern Arrernte artistry has features common to ancient rock art and petroglyph designs found throughout Eastern Arrernte homelands. Some designs reflect sand stories or body paintings but most are in a contemporary form where the artistry is not attributed to a particular source other than the artists creativity.

Designs are created on canvas, ceramics, furniture and guitars. This indigenous community art centre is 100% owned and directed by the Eastern Arrente people.
