Construction of the Kenderdine Art Gallery, situated in the Agriculture Building at the University of Saskatchewan, was made possible through a gift of Mrs. May Beamish. The Gallery's name honours Mrs. Beamish's father, A.F.L. Kenderdine, the first professor of art at the University and the founder of the now famous Kenderdine Campus at Emma Lake.
