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 Through an Artist’s Eye
This exhibition spotlights work by young artists from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Newport County. Titled “This is Our Town,” the collection represents the juxtaposition of grit and glamour in the “City by the Sea” through work that reflects their own unique hometown perspective. All proceeds from sales of any of the pieces on exhibit will go directly to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Newport County. The exhibit is scheduled to run through September.
