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.

Re­gional gallery artists in­clude Rhyno, Jennifer McCal­mont, Sne­frid Sn­eveSchultze, Bar­bara Stone and Mary Wo­j­ciechowski, whom all will be paint­ing hy­drangeas at the gallery on Satur­day, July 7, from 1 to 4 p.m. as part of the Cape Cod Hy­drangea Fes­ti­val, with a re­cep­tion and “fresh paint sale” to fol­low from 5 to 7 p.m.

An­other up­com­ing ex­hi­bi­tion, Paint­ing the Ta­pes­try of Cape Cod, fea­tures new work in pas­tel and oil by Stone with an open­ing July 21, from 5 to 7 p.m.; the show runs through Au­gust 3. Glis­ten­ing Wa­ters fea­tures new work in oil and pas­tel by Quin­nMun­son, open­ing Au­gust 4, with an artist talk and demo from 2 to 4 p.m. and a re­cep­tion from 5 to 7 p.m.; the show runs through Au­gust

15. Smith’s ex­hi­bi­tion Nauset Sands opens Au­gust 16, with a gallery talk and demo from 5 to 7 p.m; the re­cep­tion is Au­gust 18 from 5 to 7 p.m.

“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
