Prior participants say time at the halfway house is, “a unique opportunity to see a beautiful and remote part of the Cape.”
The house at the Halfway Point is a rustic cottage set in the middle of the dunes, marsh and water at Sandy Neck Beach. Excursions to this special locale provide artist with the opportunity to “unplug” and enjoy the solitude and scenic landscapes as sources for inspiration. This program is designed for the plein air painter, photographer, musician, writer and other artists who crave the time to create without everyday interruptions.
The program is sponsored by the Town of Barnstable’s two cultural districts: Hyannis “HyArts” Cultural District and the Barnstable Village Cultural District, the Cape Cod Art Association and Sandy Neck Beach Park.
