1,200 Students Visit BNG

Simplicity of Form

With the generous support of the Green family and the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, almost 1,200 students and over 100 teachers have visited the Bermuda National Gallery to see Simplicity of Form: Unfolding Abstraction since the exhibition opened at the end of January.

Bringing together an unparalleled selection of works by artists such as Frank Stella, Kenneth Noland, Bridget Riley and David Hockney, from the Green family’s private collection, the exhibition examines the development of abstract art and its seismic impact on contemporary Western Art.

We would like to extend a big thank you to the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club for the loan of their minibus, which has brought in students from schools the length and breadth of the island, including BCCL, Berkeley Institute, Bermuda Institute, BHS, Clara Muhammad School, Cedarbridge, Dalton E. Tucker, Eliot Primary School, Gilbert Institute, Paget Primary, Port Royal Primary, Prospect Primary, Purvis Primary, Saltus, St George’s Prep, Warwick Academy, West End Primary and West Pembroke Primary.

We would also like to thank Shanon Rose Robinson of the Ministry of Education for helping to coordinate the programme, which has seen class visits twice a day, every day, for the past ten weeks; alongside our many volunteers who made this possible, including Liliana Simmons who led many of the tours. 

Tours for classes and camps can be arranged throughout the coming months. Please contact Education Officer Rehana Packwood for more information at

Simplicity of Form: Unfolding Abstraction runs through to September 2023.
