The Tarkine in Motion exhibition is now on at Hobart’s famous Long Gallery in Salamanca. For full details visit the exhibition page on the Salamanca Arts Centre website.
This exhibition is a collaboration of many artists including photographers, painters, videographers, performance artists and jewellery/craft. The exhibition was made possible with the support of the Bob Brown Foundation and the inspirational drive of Tasmanian photographer Dan Broun.
The Tarkine is an incredibly special place in Tasmania – a long history of aboriginal occupation, particularly along the coast, rolling buttongrass and tea tree plains and beautiful tannin stained rivers through dark green rainforest. The region is far from secure as mining and logging interests eye off the region for the short term “smash and grab” economic management that is favoured by the Tasmanian government.
Please visit the exhibition, and make a purchase knowing that at least 60% of the sale price is a donation to the Bob Brown Foundation and will enable them to continue working to raise the profile of the region with the end goal being the creation of a Tarkine National Park and inclusion in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.
I have contributed 5 images and am very proud to be but a small part in this collective.
