AN artist featuring in The Mann Collection of Wildlife Art exhibition Brett Jarrett will be at the Horsham Regional Art Gallery on Sunday.

Jarrett will perform a 90 minute masterclass and will have a 90 minute meet and greet with regional art lovers. 

He said he looked forward to meeting art lovers from across the Wimmera. 

Jarrett said he has had a passion for wildlife and art since he was in primary school. 

“It’s never waned and have turned it into a career,” he said.

“I have travelled around the world painting animals and photographing animals. It’s been quite an amazing 27 years.” 

Jarrett has his own gallery in Narrawong, near Portland, called Bay of Whales. He was born and raised in Portland.

He said having his own gallery has a lot of positives, Jarrett said it gave him a chance to talk to people one-on-one about the artwork and his experiences.

Jarrett said his artwork is traditional realism. 

“It’s turned into fine art while using traditional methods of painting,” he said.
