Take Home Jamaican Art for Christmas!

Miniature Shanties by Eddie Harris

The National Gallery Gift Shop is an integral part of the National Gallery of Jamaica experience. Just like the museum, the gift shop allows visitors to discover and learn about appreciating Jamaican art. It is the ideal place to shop for your Christmas gifts and to support Jamaican artists and the National Gallery in the process.

The gift shop has a great selection of goods and gift items for every taste and budget, with decorative accessories and art, as well as exclusive jewellery, made by local designers. We also have a wide selection of books on Jamaican and Caribbean art and culture, as well as many high quality publications developed by the Gallery staff of art historians and designers over the years, and children’s books. We also carry a large selection of art reproduction posters and greeting cards, many of which feature works of art from our collections.

The National Gallery Gift Shop regularly updates its offerings and we are pleased to introduce some of our newest products. Handmade coin purses, clutches and backpacks created by Edna Manley College graduate Khristina Godfrey under her Heavymannaz brand are show stoppers. There are also miniature vernacular shacks and shanties of the island made by Eddie Harris, who was recently featured by the Observer as part of Design Week.

New publications in the gift shop include, “Usain Bolt: Legend,” by the Gleaner Company (Media) Limited and “Dewdrop” by Courtney Hogarth. Leonia McKoy and Andranique Morgan have added great products to our ceramics collection and Carol Campbell, Reve, The Girl and the Magpie, and Purple Jade have supplied exquisite new jewellery designs.
