Upcoming Events

The Bermuda National Gallery is a space that facilitates the sharing of ideas, dialogue and discussion.
The gallery hosts a range of engaging exhibitions, events and programmes for all ages.  

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.

A selection of portraits by Henry Ward that capture key figures in Bermuda’s diverse communities. Ward’s approach to portraiture is inspired by techniques developed over the centuries by the Old Masters, yet stylistically he aims to blend the old with the new. 

On now until October 15

The Bermuda Biennial provides a unique cultural cornerstone for Bermuda. This year’s exhibition is juried by Claire Gilman, Chief Curator at the Drawing Centre, NYC; Alexandria Smith, Head of Painting at the Royal College of Art, London, and Richard Georges, Poet Laureate, BVI.

On now until December 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 February
