0427 Up Country Down Country

Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art invites you to come and explore the main exhibition of their permanent collection, Up Country, Down Country in the Butterfield Gallery.

“Up Country” and “Down Country” are Bermudian expressions that originate from the sailing terms “upwind” and “downwind.” In Bermuda, the prevailing winds come from Somerset in the west. If you sail toward Somerset, you are sailing against the wind, or upwind (Up Country). Conversely, if you travel to the eastern parishes you would be sailing with the wind, or downwind (Down Country). This exhibition of our permanent collection explores this concept and displays our culture and heritage.”

This exhibit will run until December 31st.

Opening hours are from 10am until 4pm, Monday to Saturday, and from 11am until 4.30pm on Sundays.  Masterworks is closed on public holidays.  General admission is $5, or free for members and children under 12.

For more information, contact 299-4000, or visit www.BermudaMasterworks.org.
