Six talented artists from across Western Australia have had their work chosen to feature on banners in the Manjimup town centre as a nod to the town’s cultural heritage. Holly Booth, Graham Taylor, Pamela Kemp, Shandell Cummings, William Bennell and Donna Williams were the artists behind the winning works, submitted as part of the Manjimup Art Gallery’s latest exhibition, Noongar Seasons - Nature in Transition. From the second half of 2023, Giblett Street will be adorned with the winning artworks portraying the six seasons in the Karri Karrak area of the Noongar Nation — Birak, Bunuru, Djeran, Makuru, Djilba and Kambarang — on fixed street banner frames. The winning artworks will also be on display at the MAG from June 1 to July 8 alongside 12 other artworks received as part of the exhibition. Manjimup Shire president Paul Omodei said the exhibition demonstrated First Nations people’s deep and ongoing connection, both physical and spiritual, to the land and waters and provided a wider understanding of Aboriginal culture “particularly as it pertains to this region”. The project — supported through the Federal Government’s Indigenous Visual Arts Industry Support program — was brought to fruition by local elder and Shire of Manjimup Reconciliation Action Plan Advisory Committee representative Suzanne Kelly.
