William Vareika Fine Arts

Every Tuesday From 6PM - 7PM

The Chanler has partnered with William Vareika Fine Arts Ltd for a series of special private evening gallery tours which celebrate art, history and culture at one of America’s premier fine art establishments. Commencing Tuesday, October 8th, our executive partnership gives guests of The Chanler exclusive access to the Vareika Gallery’s large art collection and William Vareika’s forty years of expertise and knowledge in the field of American art of the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. The event will feature a one hour personalized gallery tour with commentary regarding Mr. Vareika’s unusual career story and the history of his distinguished art collection. Vareika is the leading specialist in the study of the historical art of Newport and the Narragansett Bay, especially the important 19th century artists John La Farge and William Trost Richards.

This rare art experience is available exclusively to guests of The Chanler every Tuesday evening from 6:00pm to 7:00pm, except on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. Inquire at The Chanler Front Desk or call 401-847-1300 for questions or to reserve your evening at the Vareika art gallery.

There is no cost for this experience which includes round trip transportation via The Chanler car service, fine wine, tasty light fare, and complimentary Vareika gallery art catalogues and posters.

Established in 1987 on Newport’s historic Bellevue Avenue, William Vareika Fine Arts earned “Best of RI” honors by RI Monthly Magazine and was cited by Yankee Magazine as “One of the Outstanding Reasons to Visit New England.” The Providence Journal lauded the regular Vareika gallery exhibits “that often rival museum exhibitions in depth and quality.” Artes Magazine described William Vareika Fine Arts as “this little bit of heaven-think of it as a mini Metropolitan Museum or even a room or two at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.”
