The Onslow Water Tank Mural Project is officially underway with contracted artist Jerome Davenport commencing the painting process last week.

The development of the artwork is a joint project between the Regional Arts WA, the Shire of Ashburton and the Water Corporation.

The first tank will focus on the flora and fauna that is rich to the region, whilst the second tank will celebrate the history and heritage of the town.

Shire President Kerry White said Council is pleased to welcome Mr Davenport and see the project commence.

“The Mural Project provides a great opportunity to showcase what makes Onslow such a unique place to live.

“Council is pleased to see the progress that has been made on the project so far, and looks forward to seeing the final product,” she said.

“With an extensive history, the Onslow Tank Murals will highlight to new members of our community and travellers, the different facets of the region that make the town what it is today.”

Water Corporation North West Regional Manager Sharon Broad said it was a privilege to support the Shire’s vision to showcase the beauty of the surrounding environment.

“We love to celebrate the communities we live and work in, and to be able to do this while adding to the vibrancy of Onslow’s landscape is something we’re really happy to be involved in”.

The project is expected to be completed within the financial year.
