The Tarkine in Motion project was organised by the Bob Brown Foundation to provide a special opportunity for around 150 artists to immerse themselves over Easter. Tonight, the official opening of an exhibition of their work will bring together a whirl of people at the Long Gallery at Salamanca Arts Centre, Hobart. This spectacular exhibition continues until the 1 May and presents startling and beautiful images. The ‘card’ below is added in here from the Bob Brown Foundation site.
Later this year the exhibition will travel to the mainland – eg July in Melbourne. More information can be read here.
This project plays a vital role in the ongoing campaign for the protection of this global treasure, the Tarkine. Thumbnail images of some of the works of art on the website should attract your attention – I hope that all Tasmanians will be able to visit. 120 works of art will be for sale if you fall in love with any.
