Rich Pelletreau Art Gallery - About Us

Rich Pelletreau

    Having spent several years illustrating wildlife for various organizations, shows and galleries, Rich Pelletreau decided the time had come for a change in 2001. The intent was to cut back on the over 35 art shows a year he was participating in and move to another outlet for the selling of his art. Having attained two art degrees in portraying various forms of art from two art colleges, experience in selling those forms of art in shows and galleries, and seeing a need in the Kern Valley, Rich decided that the opening of a gallery would be the logical direction to pursue. Because the portrayal of wildlife had been his forte for over thirty years and having attained signature membership status and the presidency of the Wildlife Artist Association, a national organization of professional wildlife artists, he decided that his gallery would specialize in wildlife art, a subject with which he had extensive knowledge and many friends with a mutual love for wildlife art.

Rich Pelletreau Art Gallery & Studio

    As luck would have it, a 900 square foot log cabin with the perfect ambiance for a wildlife gallery, was for sale at an affordable price, so Rich made the purchase; and his dream was starting to come to fruition.     After four months of preparation and gathering the works of over 50 well-established professional wildlife artists from all over Western United States, the Rich Pelletreau Wildlife Gallery and Studio opened on December 29, 2001. (The name was a logical choice due to his recognition in the area and his association with wildlife art.)

    Since then, the gallery has acquired the works of 28 more fine artists and has been deemed one of the finest singularly owned wildlife art galleries in California, if not throughout western United States. Its perpetually changing inventory contains original works of over 12 two dimensional mediums and 8 three dimensional mediums as well as a plethora of open and limited edition lithographs, giclée, laser and photo prints and various forms of sculpture.

    The Rich Pelletreau Gallery and Studio, located in one of the richest wildlife areas in Western United States, is found in the Sierra foothills northeast of Bakersfield, California on the north shore of Lake Isabella in the Kern River Valley. Because of the quality of the gallery’s artwork, the beauty of the area and it unique ecological situation and association with the renown Audubon California Nature Preserve, the gallery draws both wildlife and art enthusiasts alike.
