Downtown Designs is an eclectic visual arts
gallery and studio located in downtown Newport, Rhode Island.
Sharing Art, Sharing Space, Sharing Community is our passion. At our gallery, you will find artisans creating and showcasing one of a kind, handcrafted jewelry designs alongside a rotating collection of varied art mediums, all created by artisans with disabilities. You will also find unique handcrafted works created by various community artists who share space in our gallery.
Downtown Designs, which is co-managed by the artisans, participates in and hosts a
variety of community events, classes and fairs. We are also a member of the Newport Gallery Organization and the Broadway Merchants Association.
