National Gallery to hold late night viewing

The National Gallery of the Cayman Islands will have extended hours for its “All Access – Late Night” exhibition tonight, Tuesday, Aug. 25. 

Curators and educators will be on hand until 8 p.m. to talk to visitors about the history of the gallery’s permanent collection, as well as the environmental conditions and conservation requirements for the collection’s long-term care and future plans for increased interpretation and scholarship, the gallery said in a statement. 

The “All Access” exhibition, which opened in July, features a behind-the-scenes look at the permanent collection. 

Visitors can learn how to assess the condition of artwork, as well as the details of collection care and management. 

Also during the evening, the documentary “Caymanian Art – A New Frontier” by young local filmmaker Ernst Jacob Olde VI, will be screened. The short film traces the development of the gallery’s permanent collection and explores the diverse range of artists represented. 

“All Access – Late Night” will run from 5–8 p.m. and tours will be held hourly, on the hour. 

The exhibition runs until Sept. 3.
