Due West


National Gallery West is pleased to present its newest exhibition: Due West.

Continuing our commitment to serving the needs of Western Jamaica, Due West is the first submission based exhibition staged at this location. It is part of an initiative aimed at discovering and showcasing the work of artists who live in or are from Western Jamaica.

An open call was put out to both professional and amateur artists on October 20, 2018 and after the adjudication, 14 artists represented by 22 works were selected. It is our intention that this exhibition will become an annual fixture in our exhibition calendar providing a platform for the work of these artists to exhibit within the Jamaican contemporary art scene.

There’s also a People’s Choice Award. Cash prizes of $50,000.00 will be given to the “Best of Show” winner whose artwork will be featured on our social media handles along with an article about them and their work.  We encourage you to visit NGW and vote!

The opening reception was held on Sunday, January 20, 2019, at 4 pm.
