Art galleries in Grand Cayman are extremely good at carrying the work of local artists and craftsmen, such as original paintings, Caymanite jewellery or hand-woven thatch products. The quality is superb and such works have become highly collectable.
Despite the Island’s size, there is a lot to be said about Cayman’s Art scene, which is vibrant, lively and constantly growing! Exhibitions and art events showcasing local talent occur regularly, and galleries often host interesting educational workshops which are open to the public. The uniquely cosmopolitan nature of Cayman’s culture is reflected in the works produced and artists engage with varying styles and mediums when creating their artwork.
The National Gallery of the Cayman Islands (NGCI) is the country’s leading public visual arts organisation. They boast an inclusive gathering space which honors the island’s artistic heritage, and provides a platform for local artists to share their work. The NGCI hosts regularly scheduled innovative and educational creative programmes, which members and non-members alike can enjoy.
