To Speak With A Golden Voice

Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art, Vancouver, BC - Apr 22 – Oct 4

by Robin Laurence

The great Haida artist Bill Reid (1920-1998), whose sculptures, jewelry and silkscreen prints are featured in permanent displays at the gallery that bears his name, is also now the focus of a temporary exhibition. Guest curated by artist and activist Gwaai Edenshaw, who apprenticed with Reid, the show brings together “rarely seen treasures,” accounts of Reid narrated by his friends and community members, and newly commissioned works inspired by him. All bear witness to his creative legacy.
