In addition to years of representing and cultivating important contemporary artists’ careers like Peter von Tiesenhausen, Robert Sinclair, Douglas Haynes, Barb Tipton, Les Graff, D. Helen Mackie, and Allan Harding Mackay, Willock & Sax Gallery also specializes in representing historical works, such as those of Arthur Lismer, H. G. Glyde, Luke Lindoe, John Chalke, Murray MacDonald, W.J. Phillips, George Weber, John Snow, and Margaret Shelton.

Since its inception in 1998, the gallery has presented a program of notable solo exhibitions and lively group shows. In spring of 2007, the gallery moved from its original home in Waterton Lakes National Park to the Banff Town site. It moved again in June 2012, to its current gallery location in Banff at 210 Bear Street. The gallery partners with such organizations at The Banff Centre, the Nickle Galleries (UofC) and the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies.
