Each year, this popular attraction provides a picturesque setting to view art made by both man and nature. A visit to the artist shanties guarantees a cultural experience that is unmatched! This is a unique opportunity to meet Cape Cod artists and watch them work along the inspiring backdrop of Hyannis harbor.
Works vary and include photography, painting (acrylics, oils, pastels, watercolors), handmade jewelry from metals, gemstones and glass to beach stones, ceramics, sculpture, stained glass, mosaics, mariner knot work, photography, wood carving, tapestry, fiber art and much more!
Visitors to the shanties can make a day of it – stroll along the boardwalk, visit artists, have a picnic in the park! There is no fee to browse but if you enjoy fine handmade local arts and crafts or giving them as gifts, it’s a terrific place to shop. It’s a perfect place for a picnic or there are plenty of waterfront restaurants at the harbor and many more right on Main Street.
