Kwakwaka’wakw artist David Neel will launch his new memoir ‘The Way Home’ in conjunction with his solo mixed-media exhibition ‘Symbols Speak’ at Coastal Peoples Gallery on November 16th, 2019.

As a 7th generation artist, whether inspired from ancient or modern cultures, David Neel understands that artistic expression through symbols communicates what words cannot regardless of verbal or written form.  Symbols Speak represents an impressive collection of fine jewellery, carvings and graphics illustrating the artist’s exploration, cultivation, and return to his Indigenous roots.

A special highlight in this exhibition will be David’s mask of his grandmother Ellen Neel created in 1990, which will be loaned to the gallery for display from Camosun College’s permanent collection, and depicted in his new book.

Event Dates and Times:

Exhibition runs: November 16 to December 28, 2019
