Symbols Speak: David Neel Solo Exhibition and Book Launch

Saturday, November 16, 2019 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Coastal Peoples Fine Arts Gallery, 332 Water St., Unit 200, Vancouver

We're celebrating the release of David Neel's new memoir The Way Home at his solo exhibition Symbols Speak opening on Saturday, November 16th, 2019 between 3-5pm.

As a 7th generation artist, and grandson of acclaimed artist Ellen Neel, David understands that artistic expression through symbols communicates what words cannot regardless of verbal or written form.  Symbols Speak represents an impressive collection of jewelry, carvings and graphics illustrating the artist's exploration, cultivation, and return to his indigenous roots.

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