Video: Bermuda Gombey Virtual Art Gallery

October 9, 2022

The latest installment of Bernews’ series of ‘Virtual Shows’ features a virtual gallery of digital photo art images featuring the island’s iconic Gombeys.

The virtual gallery — which utilizes real images of Gombeys which have been edited –  is intended to highlight the artistry of the Gombeys, and the fact that they are a living art form. From the intricate patterns of their carefully crafted and unique regalia, to the movements of the Gombeys, this time-honoured tradition spans back centuries.

Posted this weekend to coincide with the Bermuda Gombey Festival, the virtual art gallery is Bernews ‘unofficial contribution’ to the weekend celebrating this important aspect of Bermuda culture.
