“Wonderful small gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Very well planned and open galleries with space for meetings. The gardens are also well laid out. Plenty of parking space. Interesting exhibitions.

“Fine, with room for improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The gallery is well laid out with plenty of space on both floors with different exhibits downstairs on rotation and upstairs given over to permanent art of the Caymans.However there is so much space you feel like they could make better use of it and it feels quite bare as you walk around.

The visit will take you 20 minutes at very best and I actually found wandering the gardens and looking a the sculptures more interesting than the actual gallery.

Given that the gallery is relatively new, there is still plenty of time for it to grow and mature into an excellent place for anyone who visits or lives on the island.

Worth visiting if you're passing by and being only a couple of minutes from Camana Bay, it would be rude not to, especially as admission is free.

“Fantastic Photographic exhibit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Get there before this one is gone. The blending of the old and new photos of Cayman is sometimes exciting, ghostly, and wonderful. The permanent collection is also a treat. Admission is free (donations accepted), so what a bargain.

Many beautiful original paintings and sculptures exhibited in this new gallery from local artists. A must see on your visit to Grand Cayman. There was no fee for admission; we made donations.
