WEDNESDAY, APR. 11: Masterworks exhibition The Wonderful World of Watercolours, featuring some of the gallery’s most prominant artists, is due to come down on April 29.

The gallery is encouraging the public to take the “rare opportunity to see the great watercolour artists from the collection all on display at once”.

In the exhibit are paintings by Winslow Homer, Ross Sterling Turner and Ogden Pleissner, depicting Bermuda scenes painted in watercolour. Winslow Homer is the galliery’s most famous artist and there are three of his works on display — S.S. Trinidad, 1901, Inland Water, Bermuda 1901 and Opposite Ireland Island, 1899. Ross Sterling Turner’s works include In the Garden, Bermuda 1891 and Bermuda Cottage, 1889 among others.

Ogden Pleissner’s works show various scenes of St. George’s from the mid-1950’s including The Pawpaw Tree, Silk Alley, and St. George’s.

The paintings are on display on the mezzanine level of the main gallery.

The next exhibit in this space will be the Captain Magnus Musson exhibit showcasing artworks, model ships, books and other ephemera from the last Captain of the Queen of Bermuda. This opens on May 3 and runs until the end of September.
