About the Exhibit:

Both instinctively magnetized to art from an early age, Peter Whyte and Catharine Robb Whyte, the Whyte Museum’s founders, collected and preserved a vast variety of art and objects during their lifetimes.

This exhibition includes childhood drawings of Peter’s and Catharine’s surroundings; Peter’s sculpture and photography; and art school portrait and landscape rendered during their married life.

Their interest in multiple cultures, the productivity of other artists and an insatiable quest to collect, has resulted in a diverse and abundant collection of art and artifacts, thus, works from the Whyte Museum’s historic, Indigenous, Japanese and contemporary collections are included.
