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!

Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also
popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
