The Blink Gallery is tiny but has lovely photographic pieces. Sandy, the photographer is very friendly and explains the unique techniques he uses. I especially liked his photographs of Africa as well as those of local lighthouses. His perspective is creative. It is worth stopping in.

I went into Blink Gallery and I was immediately impressed with the photo blocks. The artist, Alexander Nesbitt, apparently makes them himself.

It has some interesting photography and the sales person is nice, but nothing that would make me run back to see what else they have coming in.

For $35.00 one can purchase, for example, a nice Newport Sunset Photo printed on a block of wood. Visit on a Monday and you are... More

Nice gallery with both photography of Newport and from all over the world. Great stories to go with each piece as well. Would highly recommend browsing through the gallery.

Great little place that's worth a quick stop on Spring. Spectacular photos of Newport but also world travel. Also paintings, jewelry, etc. Not cheese ball tourist stuff. Local artists. Great for presents or for finding something cool for yourself!

If you ever find yourself in Newport RI, I highly recommend that you visit Blink Gallery. Sandy Nesbitt is a man of incredible talents on the forefront of changing the way art is viewed and created. He is not just another local artist but a world traveler who will inspire you and bring you into his experience.
