ArtPop, located on Bellevue Avenue in Newport, RI, is the creation of artist's representative, Linda Lachapelle.
It's an expansion on the concept of an art gallery. Rather than exhibiting only the work of the artists represented, the entire space is filled with objects that complement that work.
From time to time, the theme of the space changes, along with the objects. Currently, the inspiration for the theme is Italy.
The collection consists of a wide variety of pieces, including sculpture, textiles, furniture, tableware, books and more. They're artfully arranged in color groupings, with something to discover in every nook and cranny.
A visit to ArtPop is an experience that lets you immerse yourself in both the work of artists and artisans. Clicking through the slideshow offers you just a taste of what you'll find.
ArtPop will be moving in the near future to another location in Newport. More news on that soon.
