George Smith Furniture & Fabrics
Open your eyes to the oldest “last great art movement” known to man and experience the beauty and power of paintings that are steeped in the traditions of the indigenous peoples of Australia. Leslie Goldsmith, a collector herself, has gathered a group of paintings from a select, highly important, and internationally acclaimed Aboriginal artists. Ms. Goldsmith, along with George Smith Handmade Furniture and Fabrics, is confident that this event will bring an awareness and an appreciation to the American public for these striking works and art form.
All of the paintings selected reveal the world through the eyes of each artist. The inspirations of these artists come from spiritual and mythological believes and the Aboriginal peoples strong ties with their natural surroundings on their continent. The pieces use a highly symbolic composition of lines, dots and strokes that tell stories about their families, their tribes and their “Dreamtime” interpretations of how they feel they are positioned in the universe.
The show reaches its final US destination, the George Smith Handmade Furniture and Fabrics Los Angeles showroom, on November 10th and will be exhibited through November 18th. All of the exhibited paintings will be available for purchase.
The opening night part will be on Tuesday, November 10th from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Valet parking will be provided and Australian wine and cheese will be served.
George Smith Handmade Furniture and Fabrics is located at 804 North La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from Noon to 5 p.m.
