Olympia Gallery

Olympia Gallery is located in the Olympia Complex. The complex came into being at the insistence of engineer and arts patron A. D. Scott. His dream was to create a complex with an art gallery, art supply store, and art library. His desire was so strong that his dream came true.

Olympia Gallery hosts the largest private exhibition space on the island, with 2 floors and a spacious octagonal shape. The artists promoted by the gallery are mainly local Jamaican artists, mostly working with paintings and prints. You may find the occasional Caribbean artist in their show, however. Within their collection, you will also find ceramics and sculptures.

Getting There

Located in Papine, toward the outskirts of Kingston, three and a half miles northeast of the downtown area, Olympia Gallery welcomes visitors who are exploring and browsing shops in this town or nearby. Whether or not you're staying particularly close, you should consider stopping by.
