Nestled on a square of upscale shops where Main Street and Route 6A meet in the Orleans Village Center Cultural District, Gallery 31 Fine Art specializes in representational fine art of Cape Cod—the sea, shore and sky. Internationally acclaimed award-winning artists paint the unique character and luminosity found here. Well known for original art in pastel and oil, the gallery also represents works in watercolor, alcohol ink and monotype.
Visitors enjoy the insights of an artist on the gallery tour by owner Sherry Rhyno, whose experience at the easel provides secrets to the trade, from materials used to techniques applied. Gallery 31 Fine Art is the exclusive Cape Cod representation of its artists. Eminent among them are Richard McKinley, Jeanne Rosier-Smith and Deborah Quinn-Munson.

“Recent trends lean toward the interpretive side of representational work, with more edgy compositions and color for a heightened wow factor. Palette knife paintings in oil are in demand. Art buyers know quality; many are diversifying their choices for a well-rounded collection.” — Sherry Rhyno, owner and artist, Gallery 31 Fine Art
