Administrative history

The Susan Whitney Gallery was founded in 1978 in Regina, Saskatchewan, by Susan Whitney. At the time of the founding there were four other shareholders in the venture: Victor Cicansky, Joe Fafard, Jill Rawlinson, and Richard Spafford. Whitney's mother June Whitney, was also a shareholder at one time. Susan Whitney became the sole shareholder sometime in the late 1980s. The mandate of this commercial art gallery is to exhibit and sell contemporary art, including painting, sculpture, tapestry, photography, and furniture, as well as Canadian folk art. The Gallery has participated in a number of international art fairs.
