The HYArts district nurtures and celebrates the creativity and talent of established and emerging Cape Cod artists.
Adjacent to Barnstable Town Hall parking lot, the Barn is accessible from Hyannis Main Street, through the Public Parking lot access, right after JFK Museum and before Hyannis Public Library.
The Guyer Barn is a showcase for emerging and established local artists in a wide variety of genres. It is a community art space – a working artist studio and professional artist gallery supporting and promoting the arts where visitors gather year round to enjoy changing exhibitions, classes and workshops and performances. The Center is part of the HyArts campus of town owned properties-which includes Studio 46 and Gallery Artrio and Bass River Pottery at 50 Pearl.
50 Pearl was once a residential home and has a rich history as a gathering place for local artists. Playwrights and poets congregated at the home for lively readings and original Vernon B. Coleman murals decorate the basement walls. CURRENT HOURS: The barn is open various hours, year round. You will always find the doors open when artists are busy working, or for classes and workshops.
If you are interested in using the Guyer Barn to offer a class/workshop, exhibit or other idea, please complete the Proposal Form , found on our resource page.
