He was listed as an Active Member in the 1925 B.C. Art League List of Members.
In 1926 he opened The Vanderpant Galleries on Robson Street, in partnership with Harold Mortimer-Lamb. Vanderpant was an important contributor to the arts in Vancouver. He held Salons and Musicales in his studios on Robson Street, hosting local artists and art students alike, and treating them to imported music played on his phonograph while discussing art movements around the world, philosophy, literature, and mysticism.
In 1928 he displayed a group of photographs at the Provincial Exhibition in New Westminster. He also served on the Jury for the First Annual International Salon of Water Colors, held in conjunction with the Photographic Salon and display of loaned artwork.
He exhibited ten photographs at the Canadian National Exhibition in 1930.
Vanderpant took portraits of many of Vancouver's artists and art supporters. His photograph of Henry Stone was included in the souvenir catalogue of the Vancouver Art Gallery's first exhibition in 1931. Other notables who had their portraits taken by Vanderpant include Frederick H. Varley and A.Y. Jackson of the Group of Seven; Vera Weatherbie, a founding student at the art school; Eric Brown, Director of the National Gallery in Ottawa; and Emily Carr.
He showed work in the B.C. Artists Christmas exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 1933.
He was Chair of the Jury of Selection for the Seattle Art Museum's annual Northwest Artists exhibition in 1934.
Vanderpant exhibited his work extensively, and had solo exhibitions in Vancouver, London England, Ottawa, Toronto, in the Netherlands, and in Seattle. He died in Vancouver in 1939, leaving behind a large legacy of his work. A number of his art photographs have recently sold at auction for more than $5,000.00 each for a black and white print.
