A Little Bit of Australia in Santa Barbara

IMG_9450

While I was in Perth, I had the opportunity to visit a few art galleries that featured Aboriginal art.  This art is not only beautiful but also very intriguing because of it’s connections to Aboriginal religion, mindset, history, worldview and more.  If you are in the Santa Barbara area, I heartily recommend the going to see the collection Dreamkeepers- Contemporary Australian Aboriginal Art which is currently on display at the gallery on the Westmont college campus (until January 19th 2013).  Do a little research before and you will enjoy the more than the colors because the stories of the paintings will speak to you.  But even if you only have 20 minutes, it is worth walking in, looking around and absorbing some beautiful art.
