Masterworks Art Gallery

Masterworks’ mission is to build a major collection, not only of Bermuda art from the past, but also one that embodies the artists of today, as well as a vision for the future. By embracing all art forms, they hope to encourage artists from both Bermuda and abroad to develop their talents in our inspirational island setting. They also encourage the repatriation of works of art inspired by the island, and welcome any gift that may enhance their Collection. Homer’s Cafe serves a full selection of lunch items, baked goods and even a traditional Afternoon Tea on Sundays, as well as Picnic baskets for lunch in the park. Daily lunch specials are also offered. There is outdoor seating in the courtyard, and the cafe also gives full access to “Dobbie’s Hideaway”, the lounge below. This is a converted water tank which has been fitted with couches, chairs and makes a comfortable setting for a quiet coffee or to read the newspaper.
