Artist Jimmy Wright was best known for his big polar bears and bison’s, he had a master’s degree in economics and a straightforward attitude. For years he had a studio & gallery on Yates Street in Victoria and was often seen getting coffee in his white lab coat. He donated artwork to save the stings program and was a hugely generous person. This will be the first retrospective showing of his work, along with some of his letters & essays. No one did the kind of work he did… he was unique.
