Montego Bay

Gallery of West Indian Art


11 Fairfield Rd., Catherine Hall,
Montego Bay,


Owned and operated by local art doyenne Liz de Lisser, an Englishwoman who moved to Jamaica in the 1950’s, this Montego Bay gallery offers an incredible variety of hand-painted wooden birds, giraffes, and other animals, along with angels and furniture. Works on canvas come from art stars from Jamaica as well as from Haiti and Cuba. Among the most famous Jamaican artists represented here, all with international reputations, are Albert Artwell, Bobart (a.k.a. Clifford Campbell), and Milton Messam.
