50 Years of Collecting
As well as being talented artists, Peter Whyte and Catharine Robb Whyte combined their resources to create this gem of a museum. The land came from the Whyte family and the money from the Robb family. Peter and Catharine painted, purchased, or donated the paintings contained within this exhibition, and some of the artists exhibited here became mentors, friends or confidants.
The Founders' Gallery features rotating exhibitions that celebrate the vision and creativity of the Whyte Museum's founders, Peter Whyte and Catharine Robb Whyte.
