Tjala Arts was started by the women of Amata in 1997 and was originally called Minymaku Arts (Ladies Arts), it was renamed in 2006 to reflect the involvement of Anangu men in the art centre.
Aboriginal art and craft has been produced in Amata since the 1970’s but it was usually sold through the occasional exhibition or to the very few passing tourists or government employees.
In 1981 a group of Amata people took their punu (wood carvings) to Uluru (Ayers Rock) to gain access to the expanding tourist market.

Following the success of this venture, the art centre was established and the artists expanded their craft-based skills to fine arts practice including painting (acrylic on canvas/linen) and printmaking.

The centre is now a highly successful fine art centre creating exhibition standard work in a variety of mediums.
