Coastal Glass Infusion:  Philip Pariseau
Phil’s early interest in glass began with a glass blowing class more than 20 years ago and has developed into a new passion for creating kiln formed pieces of art and unique glass gifts.  Combining various techniques of fusing, raking, temperature manipulation and slumping glass, his pieces often produce a flow that results in a unique design to capture light beautifully.  He fuses the warmth and the beautiful color pallet of Cape Cod to create distinctive works of art glass including votive candle holders, plates, sculptures, wall hangings, wine coasters and business card holders.  Many pieces are one of a kind.

Hyannis HyArts Shanty dates: July 1-14, September 2-29

David Rina:
“My art is a reflection of my deep love of the outdoors, and my passion for the ocean and all the life it gives. I've been a catch and release fisherman since I was a little kid, when I used to take my dog and fly rod and go chase tiny little native brook trout behind my house where I grew up in Westchester County, New York. The older I got, the bigger the fish got, and once I was old enough to venture out on my own and explore the surrounding coastline, I was instantly "hooked" for life."
Hyannis HyArts Shanty dates: July 15-22, July 22-28, and July 29-August 4

Joyce Sullivan:
“I am a native of Massachusetts and have involved in many forms of art all of my life. Now living on beautiful Cape Cod, I find inspiration at every turn.  I find inspiration from the ocean, hiking outdoors, kayaking and spending time in my gardens on Cape Cod, my family and my travels abroad. My letterpress work is done in conjunction with my daughter in CA using old print blocks from the 1800’s that were formally the property of the Barnstable Patriot Newspaper.  They are truly a treasure from days gone by.”
