Gallery Artrio and Bass River Pottery at 50 Pearl Street are the newest additions to the HyArts Campus located in the HyArts Cultural District in downtown Hyannis. 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 and Sarah Holl ArtSpace. Gallery Artrio is owned and managed by three artists; Susan Carey, Kathy Edmonston and Colleen Vandeventer, who bring diverse professional backgrounds to the business and come together with a common vision for this new fine art gallery. As former participants in the HyArts Shanties Program, the artists have watched the Hyannis arts scene develop. "We think it is the right time to bring a fine art gallery downtown and had been looking for the right space," said Kathy Edmonston of East Sandwich. "Our goal is to offer quality fine art in a beautiful, relaxing environment that showcases the work of the artists in a way we think patrons will love," said Sue Carey of West Hyannisport. "We had more in mind than a gallery, when we imagined Artrio," Colleen Vandeventer said. "We want to be active participants in this emerging arts district. So, we will have a working artist studio during gallery hours in the summer. Off-season we will convert more of the summer gallery into working studios. We'll have Open Studio events, special exhibits and occasional workshops to keep us busy year round." Gallery Artrio will represent several local painters, as well as handblown glass from McDermott Glass Studio in Sandwich, and hand-wrought jewelry from two design studios. The Gallery plans to open the end of May. www.galleryartrio.com Bass River Pottery is the work of local potter, Jeanmarie O'Clair. Her work includes sgraffito work, functional stoneware, whimsical sculpture and hand cut artisan tiles along with her original Mermaid Mug and Sea Shell Earring bowls. "Don't wait to use the "good dishes", every day is a good day!" says Jeanmarie, who is looking forward to have her own studio workspace alongside other artists. "To have a studio near the ocean and be recognized as a working artist is a dream come true. The chance to collaborate with other artists and be in the heart of downtown Hyannis is exciting and inspiring. I am looking forward to a busy season!" Jeanmarie's studio is open to the public, currently weekdays, 9:30AM-3PM and always by appointment. www.bassriverpottery.com The HyArts Campus located at the corner of Pearl and South Street provides community art space, working artist studios and a professional artist gallery which support and promote the arts through instruction, events, exhibits and performances; the campus includes Gallery Artrio, Bass River Pottery, Sarah Holl ArtSpace and the Guyer Barn. www.hyartsdistrict.com and on facebook at hyartsdistrict.
