Art lovers will enjoy seeing some of the Caribbean’s best souvenirs now on display at Jamaica Inn. A small version of the nearby Harmony Hall Art Gallery is featured in the Upper Dining Room of the hotel and is available for purchase.
Harmony Hall was acquired in 1980 by artist Annabella Ogden-Proudlock who lovingly refurbished the beautiful 19th Century Manse and turned it into an art gallery. It is out of this gallery that Annabella sold her famous “Annabella boxes,” which are now well known in Jamaica and throughout the Caribbean.
Annabella worked alongside her husband Peter Proudlock to promote and showcase Jamaica’s finest artists. Graham Davis, Albert Artwell, Eve Foster and Christopher Gonzalez are just a few of the artists who have their work on display in the Gallery. Annabella also has some of her shell collages on display at the Gallery. If you would like to see the full collection, Harmony Hall is open everyday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Over the years the Gallery has received international acclaim. In fact, USA Today recently wrote about its’ “much-coveted Jamaican art” in an article on the “10 Caribbean souvenirs worth the suitcase space.” Take a beautiful piece of Jamaican artwork home with you.
Here is a sneak peak at some of the art on display and for sale at the Inn.
