The Town of Barnstable recognizes the importance of arts and culture as part of any economic revitalization, and continues to establish Hyannis as a regional center for creative and performing arts.

Prior to recently establishing The Hyannis HyArts Cultural District Barnstable first introduced the Hyannis Harbor Shanties and Harbor Your Arts (HyA) program in the summer of 2005 as a key component of the downtown Hyannis revitalization initiative to support the creative economy and foster economic growth. The shanties are a welcome addition to Hyannis Harbor. The artist shanties provide a unique, affordable harbor-front location for our local artists to create and sell their work. The program has been well received by Cape residents, visitors and the arts and culture community.

In 2006 the program expanded to include the performing arts, providing free family entertainment at Aselton Park, a beautiful waterfront location on the Harbor, near the artist shanties.

Be sure to take a stroll along the Hyannis HyArts Cultural District Walkway to the Sea. The Town has actively pursued and initiated the installation of various public art pieces in the downtown and waterfront areas of Hyannis. For example, currently, visitors to Hyannis harbor can enjoy the seasonal public art installation, Buoyed Coasts, which consists of 50 lobster buoys mounted on 12’-19’ poles in ornamental grass beds. The buoys frame the harbor and create a display of color, light and kinetic motion drawing activity and attention to Aselton Park. Buoyed Coasts was awarded the Honor Award by the Boston Society of Landscape Architects.

The Town’s visual arts program has continued to expand over the years, including a campus of town-owned properties at the corner of Pearl and South Streets in Hyannis. In 2007 the Town acquired two run down properties on Pearl Street and converted them to artist live and work space. From this humble beginning, a campus of buildings that provide living, work and gallery space has been developed as part of the Shirley Blair Flynn Center for the Creative Arts. The campus includes the historic Guyer Barn, Gallery Artrio and Bass River Pottery.  The town's first artist-in-residence  at 46 Pearl housed Sarah for many years.  Sarah's unique sense of space was fundamental to the beginning roots of the HyArts Campus. Sarah's studio is now at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in Yarmouth. While at 46 Pearl, 2007-April, 2016:  Sarah Holl’s ArtSpace.   Pearl Street is located between bustling Main Street and the harbor front, where the popular HyArts Shanties are open throughout the summer, offering artists and artisans space to create and sell their work.

The Town offers an "artwork on loan" program for local artists to temporarily display their work on the meeting room walls in the Selectman’s Conference Room and the Town Hall Hearing Room. The pieces are for display only-artwork may not be sold on Town property. Information on the artist is provided for those wishing to obtain further details. For more information on the program emailmelissa.hersh@town.barnstable.ma.us

Those visiting and using the meeting rooms will now find an inviting and culturally rich environment. This program provides an opportunity for our local artists to benefit from this exposure to so many who pass through town hall every day. Spreading the love of art one wall at a time-it’s a wonderful opportunity to see local art! Arts and culture programming is one component of our overall economic strategy.

Tides

Tides

Tides is a 9 foot inspirational  clay sculpture by potter Steven Kemp, cast from the sand patterns of Cape Cod's coastal waters. Read more from the artist (.pdf) located on the HyArts Campus on the corner of Pearl and South Street.  Pearl Street plays an important role as part of the Town-owned properties on the arts campus at the corner of South and Pearl, a unique artist live / work space developed by the Town of Barnstable which also includes the Guyer Barn.

The Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce gifted this pubic art to the Town of Barnstable.  Tides was installed in June of 2015.

This mural spotlights five community members, who embody the unique, hard-working, creative & fun loving nature of the Cape Cod culture.  Artist Kate DeCiccio captured the essence of community locals; these portraits reflect the artist’s dedication to painting people with an attention to how they see themselves within their community.  The mural is on display May through October as a backdrop to the stage at Asleton Park. Those featured include:

Sarah Swain, singer and songwriter, mother of three, gallery owner and president of a non-profit organization helping those on the Cape dealing with cancer, started in honor and memory of her mother.   Brandon and Justin Madison, twin brother commercial lobster fisherman whose shirts display their captains Bro Cote and Pete Brown. Brandon & Justin were adamant that they wanted to include Bro & Pete in the portrait because the Sea Captains have been tantamount in teaching them the trade and cultivating a passion for the incredibly hard work at sea.   Tim Friary, father of three and owner and master farmer at Cape Cod Organic farms, one of the first organic farms on the Cape.  He shares seasonal fruits & veggies all over the Cape and even raises pigs for organic meat. Here, Tim is featured with some of his delectable strawberries.Arlene Johnson, mother, grandmother and lifelong educator, avid birder and gardener, who at over 80 years old, still walks with her husband to a popular ice cream shop to have iced coffee and  a treat at the ice cream counter every day. Arlene taught for many years and now volunteers at a local nursery school.

What happens in the brain during meditation versus casual resting? Meditating or resting your brain every day makes a huge difference in how you approach life, how personally you take things and how you interact with others. Relaxation will allow you to see things more clearly and create a sense of calm and centeredness in your life. There are also studies that show meditation can actually slow the progression of dementia and mild cognitive impairment. Take some time for yourself and de-stress. Instructor is Kay Outwin. This is now a paid program and must reach 16 in order for it to continue.

This three week workshop will introduce you to eating from the perspective of Functional Nutrition which emphasizes the importance of high quality foods and personalized dietary balance to create optimal wellness.  Food is more than fuel or calories; in fact food delivers information to your body on the cellular level with every bite, resulting in either health or disease.  We will review the fundamentals of nutrition including macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, and fats) and micronutrients (vitamin and minerals), common nutrition deficiencies, and healthy eating strategies, including sample recipes.  Specific health topics will include cancer, cardiovascular disease, dementia, and diabetes. This is a great opportunity to learn the foundations of healthy eating, improve your diet, and establish a solid base of knowledge to better evaluate the latest nutrition recommendations in the media. Course instructor is Barbara Blackwell, a physical therapist for 20+ years and recently completed her Post Master’s Certificate in Nutrition & Integrative Health. In 2015 she began a private wellness practice specializing in nutrition, exercise and stress management.

Contemporary Silhouettes: The Art of Cut Paper
October 11 – November 19
Opening reception will be held on Friday, October 13 from 5:30 to 7:00pm


Cutting portraits, generally in profile from black card, became popular in the mid-18th century and the tradition has continued into the 21st century. Silhouettes represented a cheap but effective alternative to the portrait miniature. The group of contemporary artists in this exhibit draw upon the tradition of silhouettes as well as many folk traditions for inspiration, including Scherenschnitte, kirigami, Wycinanki, and others to create custom papercuttings, and this exhibit features an abundance of extraordinarily intricate work produced in the art form of cut paper.

With intricate details in the landscape and sky — from the brilliant orange-golds of sunrise to the theatrical colors of sunset, the luminous blues of twilight and the otherworldy light of midnight — the latest digital technologies allow photographers to push the bounds of what can be captured with a camera.  Creative vision and good field craft are also paramount to creating compelling images.  In this power-packed workshop, professional nature photographer Mark Bowie will examine in-depth the fine art of seeing, offering innovative strategies, tips and techniques for looking deeper, refining your personal vision to create expressive imagery.  He’ll also share processing techniques to convey the desired effect.
Mark will lead day and night photography field sessions to some of the Cape’s finest scenery: the ocean, beaches, marshes, woods, lighthouses and fishing villages.  During indoor instructional sessions, he’ll explore the beautiful interaction of light and subject that speaks to somewhere deep within us.

From time to time a Sandy Neck Beach Park naturalist will travel out with the group and share their firsthand knowledge and expertise of this “living museum”.

Instructor: Betty Wiley
Day: Tuesday, November 7
Time: 6:00pm-9:00pm
Price: Members $70/Non-members $90
Understanding layers and masks in Photoshop
Layers and masks are powerful tools in Photoshop/Photoshop Elements and can really be described as the heart and soul in both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.  This evening workshop is designed to demystify layers and masks in Photoshop and Elements and you will see the many ways that these tools can be used in your editing workflow.  Layers and masks are really quite simple to use.
This will be a hands-on class where you will bring your own laptop and work on sample images, step-by-step.  The goal is for you to leave this workshop with a good understanding of how to use layers and masks.  A handout will be provided to workshop attendees.
This class is geared toward those who have Photoshop or Photoshop Elements (versions that support the use of layers).  Students should have some familiarity with either program although proficiency is not required.  This is not a computer class however and students will need to know how to access files and navigate the computer.

Sky Replacement Techniques using Photoshop/Elements
(and Plug-ins such as Perfect Layers from On-One and Luminar from MacPhun)
Instructor: Betty Wiley
Date: Saturday, November 18
Time: 1:00pm-4:00pm
Cost: $70 Member/$90 Non Member
In this class, Betty will show you how to replace bland, boring, colorless skies focusing on using Photoshop/Photoshop Elements.  The techniques that Betty will demonstrate in this session are relatively easy and fast and create a believable look.  This is a popular class that Betty has taught to many groups and organizations.  Learn how to jazz up your images by replacing those ugly, bland boring skies easily and quickly!
This class will be focused on techniques using Photoshop/Photoshop Elements however Betty will also demonstrate other ways to replace skies using plug-ins such as Perfect Layers from On-One and Luminar from MacPhun software.  Perfect layers and Luminar are great alternatives if students do not own or use Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
This is a hands-on class because we believe everyone learns best by practicing and doing instead of simply watching a presentation.  Therefore, students are encouraged to bring their own laptops.  Basic computer skills are required and students should be able to find and access files on their own computers.  Since this class is primarily geared toward techniques using Photoshop/Elements, students should be familiar with using this software although proficiency is not required to take this class.

We will provide sample images for students to work on during class.

Life After Nik/Google – Exploring other plug-ins such as Luminar (and others)
Instructor: Betty Wiley
Day: Saturday, December 2
Time: 1:00pm-4:00pm
Price: $70 Member/$90 Non Member
This class will be focused on using Luminar (by MacPhun Software which is a great alternative to the popular plug-in Google/NIK plug-in suite used by many photographers.  As many of you know, Google recently announced that they would discontinue further support of the Google (formerly NIK) plugin software suite. Luminar is a plugin for Lightroom and Photoshop, as well as a standalone image editor. This means that there are lots of ways you can use this software in your editing workflow.
Luminar is very easy to use and comes with presets for quick editing and you can change the effects for the exact look you want.  In this class, you will learn how to add Luminar to your Lightroom and Photoshop workflow and how to use Luminar in place of Nik/Google’s Color Efex Pro filters. There are a wide variety of presets that you can apply to create quick looks or add finishing touches. You can even use it in lieu of Photoshop if you are a Lightroom-only user. Luminar was initially only a Mac product but a Windows version (currently beta) was just released. Betty will show you how the Luminar interface works and how she uses the many filters, presets, and features to give her images extra pop or a special look.  You can quickly create an Orton effect, add a golden hour look to your images, extract details, create a grunge or dreamy look in seconds plus much more!
This is a hands-on class because we believe everyone learns best by practicing and doing instead of simply watching a presentation.  Therefore, students are encouraged to bring their own laptops.
Prerequisites:  basic computer skills are required and students should know how to find and access files on their own computers.  Luminar should be installed and running as there won’t be time during class to install the software.  Please see the link below to download the software.  Note that a trial version is available.
