About the Gallery

As a prominent cultural institution in Vancouver, the Bill Reid Gallery is dedicated to celebrating the rich artistic traditions of the Northwest Coast while fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation for contemporary Indigenous art. 

At the heart of our Gallery is a remarkable permanent collection that presents the magnificent works of Bill Reid, including monumental works such as Mythic Messengers, white onyx Raven and the First Men, masks and other carvings, works on paper, wire sculptures, and the Raven’s Trove Gallery that showcases Reid’s exquisite jewelry. 

In addition to the permanent collection, we curate rotating exhibitions of contemporary Indigenous art that offer a dynamic and ever-evolving experience for visitors, allowing them to discover new perspectives, stories, and artistic expressions. These exhibitions are complemented by a range of programs such as artist talks, curatorial tours, and hands-on workshops that help audiences delve deeper into the content. 

As a Gallery deeply rooted in community, we welcome Indigenous community partners and performers into our space. We believe in the power of collaboration and cultural exchange, and strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all.
