As the recession continues, resourceful retailers are finding creative ways to draw in new customers.

In one such inspired move, art dealer Leslie Goldsmith has installed a selection of Aboriginal paintings in the showroom of George Smith Hand Made Furniture and Fabrics.

The works in “From Down Under: The Aboriginal Art Tour,” which were previously at the George Smith store in New York, feature the highly symbolic and boldly graphic composition of lines, dots and strokes. The paintings, which tell of their families, their tribes and their “dreamtime” interpretations, are available for sale, ranging in price from $700 for an unframed piece, to $26,000.

The showroom is at 804 N. La Cienega Blvd. in Los Angeles.
