Current Exhibitions

BNG provides a national platform for Bermudian art and artists, presenting their work alongside international exhibitions. Private tours of current exhibitions can be arranged. Please call ahead to book in advance.

Bringing together an unparalleled selection of works from the Green family collection by artists such as Frank Stella, Kenneth Noland and Bridget Riley, Simplicity of Form examines the development of abstract art and its seismic impact on contemporary Western Art.

January 26 – September 30

With an instinctive eye for framing the shot and playing with visual cues, Richard Saunders (Bermudian, 1922 -1987) applied an artist’s approach to documentary photography.  His striking black and white photographs  provide a unique way of seeing.

On now through to April 1

In this exhibition British artist Abi Box, who has been based in Bermuda for 5 years,  captures the local landscape through an exploration of the possibilities of monotype printing, in which a unique print is pulled by hand from paint applied directly onto a Plexiglass plate.

January 26 – April 21

This exhibition showcases a selection of Renaissance paintings which were bequeathed to the people of Bermuda by The Hon. Hereward T. Watlington, whose gift of artworks from his private collection was the genesis for the establishment of the Bermuda National Gallery. 

On now through to March 29
