Kwakwaka’wakw artist Beau Dick has recently completed a commissioned pole, Bear holding Killer Whale, surmounted by Eagle.
In the spring of 2015 Dick completed a second Artist Residency at the University of British Columbia; his studio was in the new Audain Art Centre there.
At Vancouver’s Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art, Beau Dick will speak on his current exhibition on Sunday, September 27, 2015 at 2 pm., as part of Vancouver’s Culture Days. The exhibition will close Sunday, September 27th at 5:00pm, so this encounter with the artist is also the last chance for the public to enjoy the show.
The BRG’s next exhibition Gwaii Haanas: Land Sea People will open October 14th and will run through March 27, 2016.
The Bill Reid Gallery has just been noted as #1 among the ten best and unique venues for events in Canada.
