National Gallery tests Sunday opening

Published:Sunday | March 25, 2012 | 12:00 AM

The National Gallery of Jamaica will be open to the public today as part of a programme to test the viability of regular Sunday opening hours.

On this 'test Sunday', the gallery will open from 11 o'clock in the morning until 3 o'clock in the afternoon and will offer free tours (regular tours start at 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., and a special children's activity tour at 1 p.m.) as well as musical entertainment.

Participation in activities will be on a 'first-come, first-served' basis - the maximum number of persons on a tour is 30.

The National Gallery is currently exhibiting the Barrington Watson retrospective, which features paintings and works on paper from the late 1950s to the present, exploring the major themes in the artist's work.

Admission rates will apply ($400 adults, $200 seniors and teachers with ID, children and students with ID free). The gift and coffee shop will be open.

The National Gallery is a division of the Institute of Jamaica, an agency of the Ministry of Youth and Culture.
