We had a private curator-led tour at the Bill Reid Gallery and Beth Carter was an excellent guide. She talked about the newly renovated gallery and the "Interface" exhibition by Meghann o`Brien. We truly enjoyed our visit and learned so much. Worth visiting for sure!

Stunning works of museum quality work. The outside of the building is gorgeous within a beautiful complex. The inside of the gallery is designed to minimize distractions and focus on the art. There is a fee to get into the gallery.

This gallery has art and jewelry created by Bill Reid, but also interesting displays his life, on native textiles, on tattoo traditions, all in a lovely space. The gift shop has jewelry art for sale, as well as books and other gift items.
