Situated in Casemates Square, in the heart of historical Gibraltar, this gallery is the most important exhibition space of the area. Established in 2011 and named after the acclaimed Gibraltarian painter Gustavo Bacarisas, the gallery hosted the world-famous Beatles Memorabilia Julian Lennon exhibition. The gallery regularly organises exhibitions by local and international artists. Impossible to miss, the Gustavo Bacarisas Gallery is a great way to get acquainted with Gibraltarian art.
This larger gallery located at Casemates Gallery is in a perfect location. The Ministry of Culture and Gibraltar Cultural Agency also organise three main annual art competitions namely; The International Competition which is open to all, the Spring Festival Competition which is open to local residents and the Young Artist Competition aimed at local young artists. Gibraltarian art, lead by the Fine Arts Association and in partnership with the Ministry of Culture and the Cultural Agency is heading towards a new Renaissance.
