You can’t beat the gorgeous views found throughout Coastal Rhode Island, which is you should bring home a painting, drawing or sketch of the coast from a local artist. Many of the Coastal Rhode Island towns — Narragansett, Newport, Watch Hill and Jamestown, for example — have local art shops and galleries displaying the works of Rhode Island artists. During the summer months, you’ll likely find artists creating live sketches and paintings along the beach and in the town squares. You can buy works of art directly from them, or visit one of the galleries for a more formal purchase (best for those who want framing and shipping included).
