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 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

Bringing together a selection of mixed media works from the BNG’s permanent collection and loans from the community, the exhibition features work by artists of Bermudian heritage including Robert Bassett, Norman Lewis, Charles Lloyd Tucker, Robert Barritt and Bill Ming.

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
