Eastham Painters Guild

A Brief History

The Guild’s first show in 1980 was held on the lawn of the Eastham Library for resident artists of the town to display their work. Paintings were hung on wood and wire from old chicken coops and everyone sold a painting on the day of the show! The next year the Guild moved to the Eastham Historical Society’s Schoolhouse Museum and continued to hold shows there for twenty-four years. The Gallery grew and the chicken coop remnants were replaced with sparkling white display tents.

Eastham Painteres GuildWe hold our exhibitions on the lawn of the Historic Schoolhouse directly across from the National Seashore's Salt Pond Visitors' Center at the corner of Route 6 and Nauset Road in Eastham. As the weather warms, look for our white tents and wonderful art which will be a nice addition to your visit to the Visitor’s Center Museum and the 1869 school room in the Schoolhouse Museum. All three available for no charge!

Come Paint With Us

Bob Bylaska - Plein Air PaintingEvery Thursday from May through October, weather permitting, several of our artists venture off to different scenic spots on the Outer Cape to paint en plein air. We invite any visiting artist to pack up your paints and join us. If you are an artist who has always wondered where to go to find the most picturesque spots on Cape Cod, stop in at our show or call Bob Bylaska at 508-255-6133 to see where we will be painting. As long-time, year-round residents, we know of some truly great places. We leave at 9 am from the School House Museum in North Eastham . We are often painting at a beautiful spot inside the National Seashore or off the trails of the Audubon Sanctuary. We look forward to having you join us!
