The Gallery greatly exceeded our expectations. The people were superbly friendly. We enjoyed the presentation of Bermudan artists and a number of non-Bermudans that had some connection to the island. For us, the highlight was the Shepard Fairey exhibit, including the famous Obama posters and...More

The exhibits are always of a high standard and this November included Picasso, Damien Hirst, and Joshua Reynolds; and a whole gallery devoted to Shephard Fairley - known through his screen prints, as the rebel 'with a cause.'

A really nice, small and manageable museum highlighting local art. If you spent 30 mins here it is a worthwhile stop on the itinerary.

You can spend an hour or so just looking and reading up on local artist. the volunteer at the entrance was very helpful. It was air conditioned for a nice stop and relief from the heat.

The Gallery wasn't very big nor did it have a lot of exhibits. But, it was a nice stop along the way. There is a theater in the building for special events. Very nice building.
