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.
Run by Hugh Dunphy since he opened it in 1965, this gallery exhibits the works of some of Jamaica’s best-known artists. The gallery also offers valuations and framing services.

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.
In this upstairs space with a range of artworks and an art shop downstairs, exhibitions are few, but often blockbusters. The gallery is located in Liguanea and is run by Susan Fredricks.
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.
Kudos to *Studio 174 *a group of young artists who run an exhibition space at 174 Harbour Street in downtown, Kingston. Go there for fresh ideas and new works.
