Heffel Fine Art Auction House
Kenneth G. Heffel Fine Art Inc. opened in 1978 under the watchful eye of industrialist and art collector Kenneth G. Heffel, who quickly built the Heffel reputation in the Canadian art business with hard work and his deep love of Canadian art. Opening a gallery in the old Royal Bank of Canada heritage building on Vancouver’s established South Granville Gallery Row, the gregarious Heffel slowly built up his collection and clientele, armed with an initial investment of valuable paintings by Canadian masters. Heffel established a reputation for buying and selling the very best works by Canadian artists, and soon rose to prominence in the gallery world. In 1987, after nearly a decade in the fine art business, Heffel passed away, leaving his sons David, then 25, and Robert, 23, to carry on the family name in the art business.
