Art Galleries Jamaica

Founded in 1970, this shop was later acquired by Diane Fredricks in 1980 and was at the Spanish Court Plaza until a few years ago. The gallery is now on Waterloo Road in New Kingston and in its collection are works by Jamaican artists such as Colin Garland and George Rodney. It also features bronze works by Fitz Harrack and Susan Alexander and carvings and ceramic works by Gene Pearson.
This gallery has been showing quality Jamaican art for the past 30 years from names like the late Milton George, Allan Zion, Everald Brown, Margaret Stanigar, Kofi Kayiga and Stanford Watson.
After a year of restoration, Harmony Hall was opened in 1981. The the mid-19th century Methodist manse is now a popular gallery in Ocho Rios. The gallery represents dozens of Jamaica’s painters, sculptors and carvers.
A space within a residential complex, this gallery occasionally displays art of Jamaican artists. The architecture of the complex is itself an attraction, and there is a well-stocked art store on the premises selling graphic art supplies and offering custom framing.
This gallery is a venue for exhibitions and other art related events. It displays paintings, drawings, sculpture and ceramics. Outside is a lush garden for respite from Kingston’s bustle.
This gallery located in downtown Kingston's waterfront houses the largest collection of Jamaican art and much of that is on permanent view. The NGJ mounts several exhibitions a year, with two recurrent ones, the National Biennial mounted at the end of every other year and the Annual National Visual Arts Exhibition and Competition in the summertime.
The gallery above this frame store is a well kept secret, where those in the know regularly go to view and buy choice pieces from select artists. Located in Market Place at 30 Red Hills Road.
