Established in 1996, the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands (NGCI) is a vibrant arts organisation. The 9,000sq ft gallery is home to a growing permanent collection of significant Caymanian works of art and hosts eight major exhibitions annually.
 

The NGCI Permanent Collection

Loosely assembled by decade, the collection traces a historical and stylistic journey. Starting with the visionary markings of Miss Lassie, to the early work of realist painters who sought to capture “the islands time forgot”, on to the early 1990s when local art was influenced by the changing realities of the time, and through to the multi-disciplinary contemporary art currently being created. These works tell the story of Caymanian art and provide the visual record of a growing country.
 

Temporary Exhibitions

NGCI hosts up to eight temporary exhibitions a year including group shows, international exhibitions and works by established artists

Café
