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.

On through to March 2024

Bermuda Wonderland is an interactive exhibition aimed at children and children at heart. Paintings, which depict each one of Bermuda’s parishes through the lens of Alice in Wonderland and the imagination of Bermuda’s best-selling children’s author, are brought to life in a virtual world. 

On through to May 2024

Threads Unravelling is an exhibition by Bermudian multi-media artist Gherdai Hassell, who returns to the Bermuda National Gallery with new textile and collage works, continuing her visual exploration of identity through the lenses of language and history.

On through to March 2024

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.
