Announcing Hyannis Artscape Thursdays

Gallery Walk: Where Culture Meets Cuisine Downtown

HYANNIS â?? In a move to signal the growth of arts and culture on Main Street, restaurateurs, merchants and artists have teamed up to create Hyannis Artscape Thursdays, Where Culture Meets Cuisine Downtown, Thursday evening, April 6th . Art Galleries will open their doors until 8pm.the first Thursday of every month. Those who visit a gallery can also enjoy a meal at one of the many interesting Main Street restaurants, with a 20% savings.*

A thriving downtown embraces its artists and there are plenty to showcase. Some galleries have been well known for many years, such as the Spectrum of American Artists and Craftsmen, Kennedy Gallery, Red Fish Blue Fish Studio, Zizini, and the Guyer Barn Gallery. Several new galleries have opened in just the past year such as the Patricia Austin Gallery, Poor Manâ??s Art Gallery, c. a. gallery of modern art, Gallery 337 and TreAngelique Art School and Gallery.

Restaurants will be serving everything from comfort food to lavish entrées, from British, Indian, fusion, Brazilian, Italian, even American in bistro settings and fancy restaurants.

Flying fish flags will identify galleries and restaurants downtown and a listing of participants will be available along Main Street.

This initiative has been generously sponsored by TD Banknorth and Four Points by Sheraton Hyannis Resorts.

* There is a 20% discount on food at participating restaurants for that night when the Artscape card is presented.  The cards may be picked up at the galleries and other merchant establishments along Main Street. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
