New Digital Exhibition

A Source of Inspiration

A new exhibition, which was planned to open later this week before our temporary closure, is now open online. Curated by Alice Moniz as part of the Bermuda National Gallery internship programme, A Source of Inspiration: St Georges As Seen Through the Bermuda National Gallery Collection celebrates the old town’s unique place in Bermuda’s historic, contemporary and artistic landscape.

Taking in works from George Ault’s spare modernist style to David Putnam Brinley’s bold flattened representations of vernacular architecture and Clarence Scott White’s light infused canvasses, the range of styles and scenes in the exhibition offer an original perspective on life in St Georges in the 20th century.
