Makuru Exhibition

Posted: 3rd July 2016

Join in the celebrations at the annual NAIDOC week exhibition "Makuru" at the Zig Zag Gallery opening on Sunday 3 July at 2:00pm.

 

The exhibition celebrates the Nyoongar season of winter and features a colourful selection of works from both amateur and professional artists.

 

Shire President Andrew Waddell said, "This is the third year the Makuru Art Exhibition is being held and the Shire is proud to present this NAIDOC week event."

 

The Official Opening will include a traditional Welcome to Country, followed by a performance by the Madjitil Moorna, Singers of Aboriginal Songs.                     

 

"The exhibition showcases a dynamic range of works in a range of media 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 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.

 

The Exhibition continues until Sunday 10 July 2016.

 

The Zig Zag Gallery is located 50 Railway Road in Kalamunda.
