Bay of Whales Gallery and Coffee Shop

The Bay of Whales Gallery is proud to present some of the very best realist animal and bird paintings in Australia by Brett Jarrett. The Gallery located 15 minutes from Portland and 30 minutes from Port Fairy in the small seaside hamlet of Narrawong, showcases sophisticated, world-class oil paintings.

Brett is passionate about sharing his life experiences as a naturalist and skill as an artist. His paintings have been selected four times for the prestigious Society of Animal Artists annual exhibition and national tour of the United States and displayed in numerous private collections nationally and internationally.

Approaching the peak of his career, Brett’s paintings express a powerful sense of realism and accuracy with strong artistic elements of how we see and enjoy two dimensional fine art. The driving force behind his work is a life-long fascination of animal anatomy, behaviour and beauty, allowing him to communicate a story or moment in time to the viewer.

Throughout the year Brett creates no more than thirty works, from small life-size portraits to complex pieces measuring over 2 metres that can take several weeks to complete. It is these larger works that feed his imagination, from a memorable experience in the field that forms the basis of some of his greatest work or the shear excitement of creating a physical and emotional window into his world of art and nature.

The Bay of Whales Gallery offers a wide diversity of beautiful fauna from around the world, from the Arctic’s polar bear and Africa’s big cats to the extraordinary emperor penguins of Antarctica.
The gallery, facing south into the Southern Ocean is located 60 metres above sea level and has 220 degrees of uninterrupted panoramic views between Portland Bay, Lady Julia Percy Island and Port Fairy.

The Bay of Whales Gallery is open Wednesday to Sunday 10.00am – 5.00pm
The Bay of Whales Coffee Shop serving freshly baked cakes, slices, tea and coffee, is open Saturday and Sunday 10.00am – 5.00pm, 47 Liebelts Road, Narrawong.
