Blink Gallery is a decade long art gallery project of photographer Alexander “Sandy” Nesbitt. With Blink he has always sought to showcase unique photography, painting and fine craft from a group of skilled local artist friends. The original location at 89 Thames Street was partnered with Nesbitt’s working studio. After a foray down on the waterfront inside the Aquidneck lobster company with a summer-only shop Nesbitt concluded Blink needed a quality, high traffic, year-around location. Today, Blink calls 478 Thames st., Newport, RI home. This move, made in April 2015 has proved successful!
Blink Gallery® is a vibrant Newport art gallery showcasing savvy world travel images and creative new photography of Newport by Nesbitt along with carefully selected contemporary paintings by John and Pam Redick, Michael Carr, Kim Petersen and the graceful seaweed prints of Mary Chatowsky Jameson, We also carry the original carbon fiber jewelry by Diana Hall, ceramic works by David Allyn from Providence, along with other smart gifts and our “Mini Art” collection.
