Search Brantford Ontario

The Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant is located in Glenhyrst Gardens, a beautifully landscaped sixteen acre park on the banks of the Grand River. The picturesque property, featuring a main house, coach house and cottage, was bequeathed to the City of Brantford by Mr. Edmund Cockshutt in 1957 with his wishes that it be used for artistic and cultural pursuits. Glenhyrst is proud to house the country's largest collection of paintings by 19th century artist Robert Reginald Whale, his sons John Claude, Robert Heard and nephew John Hicks Whale. Their landscapes and portraits document the cultural heritage of the Brant County area.
