Gallery of West Indian Art: Montego Bay Attractions, Jamaica

Gallery of West Indian Art

We Specialise In Haitian Art, Cuban Art, And Jamaican Art

The Gallery of West Indian Art was founded by Liz de Lisser many years ago and has steadily expanded its business of promoting Caribbean artists and Caribbean art ever since. Today, the Gallery has two retail outlets in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and wholesales throughout the entire Caribbean, the United States and Continental Europe. Here, because we couldn't say it any better ourselves, are excerpts from an article by Sharon Jaffe Dan which appeared in "Caribbean Travel and Life" magazine.

The bright red, green, and yellow facade of the Gallery of West Indian Art only hints at the colourful contents within.Guarded by a heavy door that's opened only after visitors ring a buzzer, a lively collection of Caribbean art – including a zoo full of outrageously painted animal carvings – makes a visit to this Montego Bay shop a must. Presiding over the menagerie is Liz de Lisser, an Englishwoman who moved to Jamaica with her husband in the 1950's. de Lisser runs the gallery with help from two of her three grown daughters. In addition to carvings, de Lisser's is brimming with Caribbean art and paintings by noted Caribbean artists, handmade pottery, tables and chairs. Truly unique collectibles offer something for every personality.

The islands of Cuba, Jamaica and Haiti are amongst the most beautiful and interesting in the Caribbean, each one brimming with artistic talent. For over thirty years, we have tried to share our own passion for Haitian art, Cuban art and Jamaican art with others, and we would like to invite you to peruse our selection of works by Haitian artists, Cuban artists, and Jamaican artists. We hope you will enjoy your visit, and look forward to hearing from you.
