About the exhibtion: 

The Spirit Within: Creation, Community and Renewal in Indigenous Art emerges from the theme of dadirri, what Aboriginal artist Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr-Baumann – a renowned educator and artist from the Daly River community of Australia – describes as the deep spring that resides in all of us, a quiet contemplation or awareness that enriches our lives.  As close observers of their environment, other Daly River artists join in the colorful play with nature, family, community and cultural retrieval through their art. In response to the inter-relatedness that this spirit within evokes, Native American artists reflect their own cultural standpoints through selected works that invite contemplation and cross-cultural dialogue. The visual exchange also connects us to the artists’ concerns with homeland and healing as important dimensions of creation, community, and renewal.
