COMING SOON: This exhibition showcases a selection of Renaissance paintings which were bequeathed to the people of Bermuda by The Hon. Hereward T. Watlington, whose gift was the genesis for the establishment of the Bermuda National Gallery.

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 January 7

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
