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.

This exhibition presents 21 American Impressionist works from BNG’s permanent collection. Painted during the first half of the 20th century, the works are a study in light and colour and capture the open landscapes and languid sun-drenched days of life in old Bermuda.

On through to October 2024

The Bermuda Biennial is a critical platform for Bermuda’s contemporary art community. The 2024 edition, which is juried by Ebony G. Patterson and Helen Toomer, presents new works by 25 local artists which span painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and installation.

On through to January 2025

This historic exhibition presents a selection of Bermuda landscapes painted by New Zealand watercolourist Owen Merton (1887-1931) in the year he spent living on the island in 1922. This is the first time that this striking series has ever been shown in Bermuda.

On through to August 2024
