Photography by Alexander Nesbitt

Blink 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.  He offers dramatic custom solutions with his artwork.  Also of interest are his hand coated 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 at least two on display in the gallery.

For gifts and little spots in the home he continues to make his popular plywood mounted photo blocks.   His work is all printed in town in his Newport studio right behind our Newport Gallery.

Our Local Art Collection

While we get settled in our new gallery location, we have a limited selection of items from talented artists including clever Rhode Island themed illustrations of Beth Braganca Bell, David Allyn’s ceramic “Thirsty” cups, and original carbon fiber jewelry by Diana Hall alongside the vast photography collection of Alexander Nesbitt. We’re looking forward to mixing it up with new work from artists we love in the coming months. Stay tuned!

Choosing the right size artwork is a challenge as old as homes. At the gallery we’re offering a few pointers on getting the size and impact just right.

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

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!
