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 for groups large or small. Please call ahead to book in advance.

BNG is proud to present the first solo exhibition by Gherdai Hassell. Driven by an exploration of her ancestral heritage, she examines the lasting impacts of slavery through a series of striking portraits, text and installation inspired by the Bermuda Archives.

Examining our relationship with the natural world through three distinct lenses: Realism, Depth & Space; Atmosphere, Colour & Light; Shape, Form & Line, Illusion and Abstraction looks at the ways in which artists have both faithfully translated and refracted the landscape. 

Recognizing that art and science are two parts of the same human drive to know and to understand, this exhibition presents a selection of artworks produced in collaboration with the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) as part of on going research projects in pteropods.

This exhibition, part of the Bacardi Collection Series, focuses on stone cut prints produced in the 1960s by the first generation of full time Inuit artists based at Cape Dorset. The settlement, located in Canada’s Arctic territories, is considered to be the epicenter of contemporary Inuit Art. 

Curated by Alice Moniz as part of the Bermuda National Gallery Internship Programme, this exhibition celebrates the old town’s unique place in Bermuda’s historic, contemporary and artistic landscape, offering an original perspective on life in St George’s in the 20th century. 

Par-La-Ville Sculpture Park is a joint project between BNG and the Corporation of Hamilton situated in the Queen Elizabeth Park in the center of Hamilton. There are numerous artworks on display throughout the grounds, which form part of Bermuda’s National Sculpture Collection.
