Event Details

Peter Barrett’s passion for the natural world shines through in his detailed watercolors, which appeared in over 40 wildlife and children’s books, including “The Wind in the Willows.” The exhibit will be on display from Saturday, May 25-Saturday, July 20, 2024.

While living in Greece Peter Barrett was able to develop as an artist. His fascination with the natural world prompted him to paint detailed and accurate watercolors of fish, birds, flora, and fauna. This work led to commissions from publishers of natural history books. He has illustrated over 40 books on wildlife and children. Peter Barrett had four one-man exhibitions of abstract expressionist paintings at the Drian Galleries in London.

The Gunn Memorial Library is pleased to host Peter Barrett’s exhibition in the Stairwell Gallery.
