In addition, Kyle was on the board of the Intermedia Society and manager of its facility. After moving to Victoria in 1973, he founded the Victoria College of Art. While acting as its principal, Kyle maintained his abstract painting practice, though public exhibitions of his work were infrequent. Kyle passed away in 2005.
