Known for an assortment of handloom silk and indigo cotton designs, this gallery displays a wide range of handmade textiles, decorative arts, and antiques from Southeast Asia and China.
One of many artsy destinations you’ll encounter in the historic Tiverton Four Corners, find Intarawut Gallery inside the old grange hall on Main Road.
You would be hard pressed to find a more expansive collection of Asian and Buddhist artwork and fine textiles on the Farm Coast. A native of Northern Thailand, curator Hathaithip Intarawut originally opened the gallery in Massachusetts 20 years ago; now in its Tiverton home, the collection has grown to include historic furniture, paintings, sculpture, clothing, and jewelry. “A visit to the Intarawut Gallery evokes a rarified trip to the classic textile markets of Southeast Asia,” says Intarawut. “In a singular gallery, on a lovely country road in Rhode Island, it is uniquely possible to sit in an oversized Ming Dynasty horseshoe-shaped armchair next to a carved Elmwood Wine Table (both once owned by the Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei), while poring through a well-ordered pile of sumptuous antique textiles.”
