What makes it a Rhody Gem?

Sail boats, compasses, blue skies, and fluffy white clouds – the moment you enter, you know you’ve charted your course on the path to Ocean State love. “Everywhere you look in this hybrid shop/gallery, there’s art you love to live in,” Vanessa Piche explains. “Award-winning oil paintings on the walls, breezy hand-printed apparel for every member of the family, handmade jewelry inspired by the sun and sea.” And at the center of it all is the artist herself, creating the oil paintings that inspire the rest of her line of merchandise. Piche sells full-sized original works depicting quintessential New England summer scenes of vessels on the water, sunsets, and stunning nature-scapes for home galleries, but wearable art is adapted from scenes she’s painted to create comfortable nautical apparel perfect for anyone. Show your Rhody love with T-shirts, hats, and hoodies that depict our very own coastlines and landmarks.
