About the Exhibition

The exhibition celebrates the Noongar season of winter and features a colourful selection of works from both amateur and professional artists. These works have been produced in a range of media including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, mixed media and photography. (Marilyn to confirm) The Noongar seasons are Birak, Bunuru, Djeran, Makuru, Djilba and Kambarang. Each of the six seasons represents and explains the seasonal changes we see annually. The flowering of many different plants, the hibernation of reptiles and the moulting of swans are all helpful indicators that the seasons are changing.
