to Bolivar Gallery
1965, Hugh Dunphy opened a gallery, named after the
great hero of Latin American Independence, Simon Bolivar.
The Jamaican artists were
enthusiastic about this new venture and over the last forty years most of
the best-known artists have exhibited at Bolivar Gallery.
So many years of showing
Jamaican and International artists have given the gallery a wealth of
knowledge and experience, and now that a New Phase is beginning this
expertise can be shared with old friends and our new public. For three out
of the five first decades of Jamaican Art, Bolivar has been the name that
has stood out and been appreciated for its constant search for beautiful
works of art. This search will continue.
