The Kings Lens and Friends is Newport’s premiere revolving art gallery, which began in 2016. Located at the start of the Fifth Ward, the shop has grown into a community centric gallery featuring the work of gallery owner and curator Patrick Murphy, and his talented friends alike.
Featuring over 80 artists in the past four years, artists find comfortability in the gallery’s no boundaries policy. There is no archetype for an artist to be featured but rather the values they hold and how true to their passion they stay. From art showings, farm to table dinners, movie premieres, outdoor art shows and concerts, the possibilities are endless, and Patrick wants to try them all.
A true believer in artistic freedom, Patrick encourages artist to think outside the box and use the space as their canvas. Home of the good waves and aloha always.
