Christmas Shopping at the NGJ Gift Shop

Are you in search of the perfect holiday gift to show your family and friends that you care? Look no further than the National Gallery of Jamaica Gift Shop, which offers a wide selection of fine gift items to suit every personality and budget.

Send Holiday wishes and New Year cheer with our exclusive greeting cards featuring iconic works of art from the National Gallery’s permanent collection. This season, we are excited to offer three new popular Jamaican artworks from our national collection as Christmas cards, available with pre-printed holiday greetings or blank. The new cards feature artwork by celebrated Jamaican artists Gaston Tabois, Albert Huie and Colin Garland. These artists have created beautiful visualizations in paint that depict the Jamaican landscape, people and imagination.

Intuitive (self – taught) artist, Gaston Tabois’ Road Menders (1956); Albert Huie’s Noontime (1943) and the centre panel of In the Beautiful Caribbean (1974) by Colin Garland are the works selected. We are also pleased to offer Red Set Girls, and Jack-in-the-Green (1837) by pre-twentieth century artist, Isaac Mendes Belisario, courtesy of The Hon. Maurice W. Facey and Mrs. Valerie Facey collection.

Also new in our Gift Shop are impressive masks created by the multi-dimensional artist, Nakazzi Hutchinson and matted colour as well as black and white photographs by fine art photographer, Donnette Zacca, who was awarded the Silver Musgrave Medal this year by the Institute of Jamaica.

The National Gallery Gift Shop offers an assortment of fine, Jamaican-made merchandise, including: jewellery, prints, paintings, photographs, postcards, handcrafted woodwork items, T-shirts, ceramics, aromatic spa products, and home décor, which are designed and produced by local artists, designers and crafts producers. Revenue earned from the Gift Shop helps to support the National Gallery of Jamaica’s education and exhibition programmes.
