Building Collections

West Vancouver Museum Collection

The Museum's collection comprises works by B.C. Binning, Gordon Smith, Jack Shadbolt, Emily Carr, Jane Billaux, Wayne Eastcott, Zoltan Kiss, Lionel Thomas, Winston Elliott, Robert Buckham, Alistair Bell, Orville Fisher, Tam Irving, John Fulker, and Selwyn Pullan, among others. Our history collections include significant items from the estates of Jessie and Bertram Charles Binning and architects Duncan McNab and Hugh Hodgson. Recently (March 2015), acclaimed Canadian artist Gordon Smith donated his personal art collection to the Museum, including works by Ian Wallace, Ann Kipling, Arabella Campbell, Rodney Graham, Attila Richard Lukacs, and Douglas Coupland. And in June 2015, we received two significant donations by renowned architectural photographers Selwyn Pullan and John Fulker. Their gifts, comprising some 30,000 negatives and transparencies, as well as 200 photographic prints, add appreciably to the Museum’s ability to support, create, and present exhibits, programs, and publications related to the development of West Coast modernism and other topics.
