Inspired art: Three murals adorn Sea Lake

SEA LAKE is halfway through an artsy upgrade, with three painted murals being established by two talented artists throughout the main area of the Mallee town.

The Calder Highway and Best Street will soon be a completed attraction, as artists Joel Fergie and Travis Vinson, also known as The Zookeeper and Drapl respectively, have been carefully selected to bring the town to life with farming related imagery.

The walls will be given their new look after Advance Sea Lake Incorporated (Inc) was successful in gaining a $20,000 grant through the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) Tackling Tough Times Together program.

The canvasses for the artists to work their magic include the main entrance to Best Street, being The A79 Corner, and the former NAB building, facing the Calder Highway, to help attract traffic and draw them in.

Once travelling down the street, visitors and locals will then be drawn to Apex Park with the Sea Lake Hardware wall also getting a mural makeover.

The former NAB building has already been completed with a mural titled Planting for Tomorrow featuring farmers in a paddock of wheat.

"It was important to understand and grasp what would suit the local community," Mr Fergie said.

"And we encourage the community to continue to come and chat with us and put forward some ideas, for future projects, as that's been a huge highlight for us, just spending time with the community here."

Advance Sea Lake Inc is also looking at various ways to fund the expansion of the Sea Lake Art Project, ultimately wanting to have the local silos painted.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to support the silo painting, called the Sea Lake Arts Project, while donation buckets are located throughout the town.
