Where Sky Meets Earth - An Aboriginal Art Exhibition by Dr
Shane Smithers

Aboriginal Culture describes the place where we grow, live and dream as ‘Where Sky meets Earth.’ This exhibition brings a new energy to this story, giving context to stories of greatness, good and bad, sky heroes and ‘black devils’ carved in stone and painted in caves. Importantly, these works reflects a local style rather than the dot-art or cross hatching of central Australia or the top end. The images and carvings employ the patterns and symbols of NSW and more specifically of the Darug people. This is contemporary Aboriginal Art; modern, vibrant and powerful.
