Moon Author's Review
The National Gallery (10 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Tues.–Thurs., 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Fri., 10 a.m.–3 p.m. Sat., closed Sun. and Mon., US$1.15 adults, US$0.55 students and persons 65 and over) is the go-to place for a concise overview of Jamaican art, from Taino artifacts and colonial art dating to Spanish and English rule, to pieces charting the development of Jamaican intuitive and mainstream expressions. The works at the National Gallery reflect Jamaica's landscapes and its people, and their history, religion, spirituality, and folklore. Artists whose work is part of the gallery's permanent collection include Mallica "Kapo" Reynolds, Barrington Watson, Albert Huie, Carl Abrahams, John Dunkley, and Edna Manley.
