Celebrating the Nyoongar seasons

Shire of Kalamunda chief executive Rhonda Hardy said this was the second year that the Makuru Art Exhibition had been held.

�Last year, in the inaugural exhibition, we saw a diverse range of artists, some who had never exhibited before, and the quality of works was amazing,� Ms Hardy said.

Artists can submit two entries and all media is welcome, including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, mixed media and photography.

The Nyoongar seasons are birak, bunuru, djeran, makuru, djilba and kambarang.

Each of the six seasons represents and explains the changes in WA�s environment.

The flowering of many plants, the hibernation of reptiles and the moulting of swans are all helpful indicators that the seasons are changing.

Applications close on Tuesday, July 7.

The exhibition will be held at the Zig Zag Gallery and will be open from Friday, July 10, to Sunday, July 26.

Copies of the application form are available from the Zig Zag Cultural Centre, 50 Railway Road, Kalamunda.
