Photography by Alexander Nesbitt

The gallery exhibits work by Newport photographer Alexander Nesbitt and is stocked with a wide selection of his images in a variety of finishes. Nesbitt is a photographer and maker with many fabrication skills and he offers dramatic custom solutions with his artwork.  Also of interest is are his self made metal prints with a hand brushed edge to the image – revealing the aluminum below.  Nesbitt is perhaps best known for his award-winning multi-panel collages and we usually have a large one on display.  For gifts and little spots in the home he continues to hand make his popular plywood mounted photo blocks.   His work is all printed in town in his Newport studio.

Our Local Art Collection

The gallery has an ever changing collection of local artist including 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 Braganca 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.

You need art. You can invest in something that tells you every day that you have what you need. Something that says life is more than a struggle and in some measure a product of your aspirations and dreams.

Mount Kilimanjaro
After being in the orphanages, Sandy was quite aware of the impact it had on him – brought him down to Earth, thinking, let’s keep this real. Let’s turn this into something impactful. The photos were initially difficult to take. He was searching for something epic, emotional, or with drama, but instead was enchanting a one dimensional story. Click here for the full story!
