Cape Cod Artists & Artisans Ready For 2010 Summer Season

What most folks may not know about Cape Cod is that it is a haven for up-and-coming and established artists as well. In addition to endless subject matter, artists and artisans are drawn here because of the opportunities to study, grow, exhibit, and sell their work. The uncommon beauty of Cape Cod is reflected in the work of these talented people.

Saturday, May 22nd, is the opening of one of the more enchanting and colorful art shows on the Cape. The “Harbor Your Arts” Artist Shanties in Bismore Park in Hyannis will be opening for the 2010 season at 11:00 am. More than 55 Cape Cod artists and artisans will display their work in quaint little “shanties” overlooking picturesque Hyannis Harbor. This program provides a unique, affordable harbor-front location for local artists to create and sell their work. The shanties will be open from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm Saturdays and Sundays through June 20th. Starting June 26th, they will be open from 11:00 am until 8:00 pm daily throughout the summer.

When visiting Hyannis, take a stroll along the “Walkway to the Sea.” This brick path will lead you from Main Street at the Village Green down to Ocean Street, Hyannis Harbor, and Bismore Park. At the Artist Shanties you will find paintings, photography, handmade jewelry, stained glass, mosaics, ceramics, sculpture, scrimshaw, mariner knot work, rock jewelry and much more.
If you would like to explore the artists and artisans galleries and studios throughout Cape Cod and the Islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, come stay at our historic Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast Inn and we will provide you with a copy of Arts & Artisans Trails. We can also provide you with tickets to Nantucket on the Steamship Authorities' high-speed ferry at a discounted price.

Whether in one of the shanties on the harbor, a barn off the beaten path, or one of the many lovely galleries, you are sure to find a remarkable piece of art to take home as a reminder of time spent on Cape Cod.
