UNDERNEATH a cloudy sky more than 100 artists converged on the Tarkine on Friday to capture the 450,000 hectares of&nbsp;wilderness in their work. Each year musicians, painters, photographers and film makers from across Australia come to the&nbsp;North-West Tasmanian forest for&nbsp;the&nbsp;Tarkine in Motion project. Over three days of the Easter long weekend artists&nbsp;celebrate&nbsp;Australia’s natural habitat and endeavor to make it more accessible to the public. “Our intention [is] to have people go into remote areas and broadcast them,” Frankland River base camp coordinator&nbsp;and campaign manager of the Bob Brown Foundation&nbsp;Jenny Weber said. Ms Weber said the project was a rare opportunity for people to see the&nbsp;“threatened forest.”&nbsp; “Sometimes the only ones that see them are the ones that cut them down.”&nbsp; Along with capturing the native forest through art, the hope is to promote protection of the forest and development of the regions economy Ms Weber said. “In the bigger scheme of things, across the globe, this is a place that is growing in popularity.”&nbsp; “The intention is to point out that having a protected landscape of the Tarkine as World Heritage or National Park can contribute to the economy of the North-West.”&nbsp; The Bob Brown Foundation which organised the event hopes to see the&nbsp;450,000 hectares of the Tarkine declared a National Park and World Heritage Area. “Right now they [the artists] are coming here to show people what is so remarkable about the area,” Ms Weber said. Through paintings, photos and even musical performances artists&nbsp;aim to illuminate the&nbsp;unique landscape&nbsp;seen no where else in the world. Five base stations were set up across the region on Friday with many artists staying in accommodation from&nbsp;Corinna&nbsp;to Meunna. The first arriving artists began&nbsp;posting their work online and through social media on Friday. The main Tarkine in Motion exhibition will take place in Hobart in&nbsp;January 2017. In the mean time the works from the project can be viewed online or at&nbsp;roving exhibitions, at&nbsp;Burnie Shines in October, in Brisbane in July&nbsp;and at Federation Square in Melbourne. The Bob Brown Foundation organised the Tarkine in Motion after successfully raising $30,000 through a crowd funding&nbsp;campaign.
