New Main Street Art Banners Celebrate Local Environment and Culture 📷: Artist Tim Kerr with Shire President Julia Meldrum in front of the new banners that line the main street.

New Banner Designs on the Main Street

The new banner designs by talented local artist Tim Kerr have been unveiled on the main street.

The bold and beautiful designs not only celebrate the uniqueness of our natural environment but also the local culture and connection to the land.

The six different banners are based on the seasons of the Noongar calendar: Birak, Bunuru, Djeran, Makuru, Djilba and Kambarang.

Using expert painting and graphic design techniques to create the designs, Tim was inspired by the local cultural seasons.

The colours are representative of each season and feature flora and fauna illustrations relevant to the stories of them.

Shared knowledge of the seasons was provided by traditional owner Zac Webb and cultural consultation was given by Wadandi artist Sandra Hill.

This exciting project strives to create a strong and vibrant sense of place for Margaret River town centre and recognises the endemic flora and fauna of the region.

The designs not only have environmental messages but local cultural messages too, which are now on display for the whole community and visitors to see.

This second round of banner designs are part of the Main Street Art Banner project. Artists and Graphic Designers Emily Jackson and Tim Kerr were the successful applicants for this public art commission.

There are 14 banner posts (two banners per post) that run along the Margaret River town centre on Bussell Highway.
