When buying art in Jamaica, a trusted name is Bolivar, one that is well known on the island. Established since 1965, Bolivar Gallery and Antiques has been the oldest art gallery in Jamaica. The gallery was named after the Latin America revolutionary Simon Bolivar, and displays a collection of works by local and international artists, using various media.
In addition to a standard collection hosting local and international artwork, Bolivar hosts exhibitions showcasing new works while encouraging purchases from guests at the viewing.
Bolivar also hones other crafts apart from selling art. Due to it's connection with European auction houses, the gallery has the potential to locate pieces of interest and acquire them for clients. In addition, the value of any artwork in one's possession can be assessed by Bolivar.
Framing is also a skill embraced by the Jamaican gallery, which also has a repertoire of special interest books.
