The National Gallery of Jamaica is pleased to announce the creation of the Dawn Scott Memorial Award, which will be presented to one artist participating in its Jamaica Biennial 2014exhibition, which will be on public view from December 7, 2014 to March 15, 2015.
The National Gallery of Jamaica is the oldest and largest public art museum in the English-speaking Caribbean. It originally opened at the historic Devon House on November 14, 1974 and will be celebrating its fortieth anniversary this year. Devon House was a beautiful and popular location but the National Gallery quickly outgrew the premises because of its expanding collections and exhibition programme.
Venue: NATIONAL GALLERY OF JAMAICA, 12 Ocean Boulevard (Block C), Kingston. Tel. (1876) 922-1561 and 922-1563
Time: 11:00AM - 4:00PM
Please join us at the National Gallery of Jamaica for their Last Sundays programme which fill feature the opening of the exhibition, "Anything with Nothing: Art from the Streets of Urban Jamaica." There will also be a poetry reading at the event this Sunday featuring Jamaica's new Poet Laureate, Professor Mervyn Morris, O.M.
