The Hyannis Artist Shanties. If you have never heard of them you are missing out on a small slice of the art created on the Cape. These little Shanties were introduced some years back and they are seasonal. They host a variety of artist throughout the spring into the late summer from May to October and they do a one night opening for the christmas stroll every year. Two of the Shanties are rotating and each week a new artist or artists come and display and sell their work, so there is always something new to see.
I am one of those lucky artisans this week until the 16th of September. I have had a terrific time so far and will definitely try to get a slot for next season. The other artists have been wonderful and the response from the browsers and buyers has been fantastic. Not only do I get to have a permanent location that I don't have to break down every night but I have a fabulous view all day.
If you come to Hyannis please make sure to visit this little jewel. There are a few great restaurants and there are harbor cruises and Hy-line Ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard are right there. Just up the street is Main street and South street who also have many artists and great shops including the Sarah Holl studio and in the other direction is the Kennedy Memorial Beach.
