The John L. Wehle Gallery holds notable collections of historic clothing and wildlife and sporting art spanning four centuries—from the 1600s to the 1900s -- resulting from 40 years of collecting by the museum’s founder. The collection of wildlife and sporting art features works by such artists as John James Audubon, Robert Bateman, Carl Rungius, Maud Earl, Allan Houser and Bruno Liljefors.
The gallery also houses a collection of western views and sculpture created by artists who sought to create a truly American art, such as Frederic Remington, Robert Henri, John Sloan, and Taos Art Colony painters including Eanger Irving Couse, Ernest Hennings, Ernest Blumenschein and others. The collection includes early castings of iconic works such as Broncho Buster and The Outlaw by Frederic Remington, End of the Trail by James Earle
The gallery is located at Genesee Country Village & Museum, a 19th-century country village, complete with more than 40 furnished buildings.
