The National Gallery of Jamaica is pleased to announce that Barrington: A Retrospective, an exhibition of more than 250 paintings, drawings and original prints by Jamaican master artist Professor the Hon. Barrington Watson, OJ, will be held over until April 29. The exhibition was originally scheduled to close on April 14.
In light of the success of our recent test of Sunday opening hours, furthermore, the National Gallery will exceptionally be open on Sundays April 22 and April 29, from 11 am to 4 pm on both days. This will give viewers who have not yet seen the Barrington Watson retrospective additional opportunity to view this important exhibition before it closes.
On April 29, all admission fees will be waived and we will offer complimentary tours of the Barrington Watson retrospective starting at 11:30 am, 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm respectively on each day, as well as special children’s activity at 12 noon and 2 pm. The maximum number of persons per tour is 30 and participants will be accommodated on a “first come, first served” basis. Our coffee and gift shops will be open with special pre-Mother’s Day discounts on purchases over $2,000. The Barrington Watson retrospective can also still be seen during regular opening hours until April 28: Tuesday-Thursday, 10 am to 4:30 pm, Friday 10 am to 4 pm and Saturday 10 am to 3 pm.
