Photography by Alexander Nesbitt

Akin to the “permanent collection” the main body of work at Blink Gallery is from Newport photographer Alexander Nesbitt. Nesbitt is a maker with many skills exhibiting a unique kind of hand-coated, self made metal print along with his ever popular plywood-mounted photo blocks, as well as archival limited edition prints.  All printed by the artist in his Newport studio.

Waves and Woods – the Redicks  

Opening Reception Saturday, October 1st  6-9pm

Blink Gallery is excited to welcome the works of husband and wife artists John and Pamela Redick. Through two vastly different and distinct approaches to painting, they each achieve a meticulous recreation of the natural world.

John’s ocean waves utilize the liquid properties of paint to simulate the movement of moving water while Pamela mimics the details of the forest by recreating each tiny shape.  Each artist thoughtfully applies or forfeits control of the materials to generate life-like works of beauty.

We hope you’ll join us for an opening reception on Saturday, October 1st at Blink.
