Hubby and I ventured off to the local Geelong gallery to view the Land of the Golden Fleece exhibition. Arthur Streeton was an impressionist artist in the 1920’s and captured the feel of the places, the times and the potential upheavals threatening this country. The room was painted a vivid blue and added to the intensity of the exhibition. The whole place seemed to vibrate with something akin to happiness.
Interestingly a photographer had traveled to many of the places from which the paintings had been captured, and his photos showed how true Arthur Streeton was to expressing the essence of the land, the people and the beauty. Having been to many of the areas; Grampians and Lorne, I felt transported back to these magical places. Their beauty and harshness captured so dramatically.
Sharing this experience was very special, we both had different perspectives and that only enhanced the connection with the exhibition and with each other.
Afterward we ventured in to another exhibition of glass, colorful, alive, dramatic and so amazing.
If you have the chance to see the exhibition by Giles Bettison it is so worth it, uplifting, mesmerizing and simply Beautiful.
If you have the chance to get out and explore your local Art Gallery, give it a go, it’s simply amazing what inspiration you will discover…and it’s so empowering for your Soul. You never know you may just feel like dancing!
