We had read about this gallery before coming to Vancouver. Bill Reid was a renowned Native artist. This intimate gallery features his totems, carvings and jewelry. In addition, there are revolving exhibitions by other artists and a delightful gift shop.

This intimate gallery has a lovely collection of Bill Reid’s works, and I especially appreciated the jewelry and miniature carving pieces. Unfortunately when we visited, the second floor was undergoing a exhibit change so we were unable to take in that area. Still a must-visit...More
