Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art
The Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art opened in May 2008 in downtown Vancouver. This public art gallery is named after Bill Reid (1920 – 1998), the acclaimed Haida master goldsmith, carver, sculptor, writer, spokesman and one of Canada’s greatest artists. The Gallery is devoted to understanding and appreciating contemporary Aboriginal art of the Northwest Coast.
Gallery Highlights include over 40 pieces of Bill Reid’s gold and silver jewelry, Reid’s bronze masterpiece Mythic Messengers, several of Reid’s works that are featured on the Canadian $20 bill and a full-scale totem pole, carved by James Hart of Haida Gwaii. The Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art is an initiative of the Bill Reid Foundation. Established in 1999 as a non-profit charitable organization, the Foundation’s mission is to preserve the art and perpetuate the legacies of Bill Reid.
The Bill Reid Gallery is an ideal choice for corporate receptions, media and cultural events and private dinners. Choose your caterer, beverages and other suppliers. Enhance the mood with music, dance performances or a guided tour for a dramatic cultural experience.
