The Bill Reid Gallery Emerging Artist Program

By: Bill Reid Gallery

Bill Reid was an artist, activist, author, broadcaster and a mentor to emerging artists like James Hart and Gwaii Edenshaw who now impact and engage their community and beyond. We continue to honour Bill Reid’s legacy as approach our 10 year anniversary by demonstrating these values through our newly renovated Gallery.

This will include a new mezzanine gallery and a dedicated education space to expand our capacity to increase rotating exhibitions and programming. Thanks to the generous support from the RBC Foundation and other partners, we will be able to provide mentorship opportunities for emerging Indigenous artists, curators, and educators. This will allow these individuals to expand their expertise, build their profiles and share their work through the exhibitions and programs in our new space.

Be sure to check back as we will be announcing our first focus exhibition on display when we open late this spring!
