      Symbols Speak: David Neel Book Launch + Exhibition

      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 in Gastown 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.

      Throughout his career, David's highly-skilled techniques have brought him to the forefront of jewelry design. His creative force conveys an innate ability to tell symbolic stories as he moves effortlessly from jewelry-making to wood-carving at a whim. Expressing his ideas on a broader scale instigate a dialogue towards a deeper appreciation for his cultural heritage.

      "This exhibition is the companion to my new book, which is the story of how I found my way back home to B.C. after 25 years away to follow in my family's footsteps." - David Neel

      Monday, November 18th - Friday, December 27th 2019

      332 Water Street, Unit 200, Vancouver BC
