Sarah Langley Gallery
The Sarah Langley Gallery is the newest addition to the burgeoning Newport art scene. Named after Sarah Langley, one of the early owners of Hammetts Wharf, the Gallery is located at the entrance to our hotel. Purposefully established to engage both hotel guests and the local community through the arts, the Gallery is a celebration of the artistic energy in and around our city. It features rotating exhibitions showcasing work inspired by Newport and the Northeast region. Ongoing exhibits highlight the work of both local and nationally renowned artists. Visitors can connect with artists, curators and galleries through special receptions and artist “talks”. In addition, the gallery will host partnerships with regional art and academic institutions. The Sarah Langley Gallery is a true testament to the importance of the local community to Hammetts Hotel.
Current Exhibition: The Karin Gielen Exhibition
Belgian painter and current Newport resident Karin Gielen is the first individual local artist to have her work exhibited at our Sarah Langley Gallery. Her paintings are known for the intensely focused spontaneity. In her most recent work, she investigates the different ways to communicate fragility with the fewest possible means, primarily concentrating on line instead of color. This exhibition runs through November.
