Photography by Alexander Nesbitt

The main body of work at Blink Gallery is by Newport photographer Alexander Nesbitt.  Nesbitt is a shooter and maker with many skills. Besides his traditional archival limited edition prints he is exhibiting a unique type of hand-coated, self made metal print with a hand brushed edge to the image.  Nesbitt is perhaps best know for his award winning  multi panel collages and we usually have a large one on display.  For gifts and little spots in the home Nesbitt continues to make his popular plywood mounted photo blocks which use a unique technique he devised.   Nesbitt’s work is all printed in town in his Newport studio.

Our Local Art collection.

The gallery has an ever changing collection of ocean themed paintings by R. Michael Carr, John and Pamela Redick, Cathy Haynes, and Kimberly Petersen.  In prints we have a wide selection of lyrical seaweed prints by Mary Jameson as well as the clever Rhode Island themed illustrations of Beth Barraganca Bell.  In ceramics we have David Allyn’s handmade one-of-a-kind Thirsty mugs.  In jewelry we carry the original carbon fiber jewelry by Diana Hall.
