The Bill Reid Gallery
The Bill Reid Gallery was named after the acclaimed Haida artist Bill Reid (1920 – 1998) who was a master goldsmith, carver, sculptor, writer, broadcaster and spokesman.
Nestled in the heart of downtown Vancouver, the Gallery is home to the Simon Fraser University Bill Reid Collection and special exhibitions of contemporary Indigenous Art of the Northwest Coast of North America.
The Bill Reid Gallery is Canada's only public gallery dedicated to contemporary Indigenous Art of the Northwest Coast.
Inspired by our exhibitions and the works of Bill Reid, our offerings range from works of authentic Indigenous art to merchandise and art books. The Gallery Shop supports contemporary Northwest Coast Indigenous artists. Proceeds from all purchases support Bill Reid Gallery artistic and educational programs.
Learn more about Indigenous cultures of the Northwest Coast through our Gallery programs. We offer a dynamic range of events for people of all ages including artist talks, hands-on workshops, storytelling, panel discussions and more.
