Mario Finlayson National Art Gallery Open Day


An Open Day to promote the new curation at the Mario Finlayson National Art Gallery will be held on Wednesday 2nd June. This will mark the 6th anniversary of the opening of the Gallery to the day and will be a chance to celebrate the new works on show.

The Gallery which already housed works by Gibraltar artists Gustavo Bacarisas, Jacobo Azagury, Rudesindo Mannia, Leni Mifsud and Mario Finlayson, now also displays works from artist and playwright Elio Cruz. Newly acquired works and paintings not exhibited before will be on show, with the ‘Quote room’, a room displaying a work and quotation by each artist, now a free-flowing space adding to the overall visitor’s experience.

Guided tours will be on offer at 10.30am and 2:30pm, for which booking is essential. There will also be a Children’s Hour between 4:30pm and 5:30pm to encourage younger visitors, with a variety of activities on offer.

The Hon. Prof. John Cortes, Minister for Culture, will give a rededication address at 12noon. Complimentary cheese and wine will be offered throughout the day for visitors.

Gibraltar Cultural Services encourages the public to visit the City Hall and appreciate the works of art on offer in this historical setting.

The Gallery will be open until 6pm on this day. For bookings and more details contact the Cultural Development Unit on 20049161 or email
