The Guyer Barn is a showcase for emerging and established local artists in a wide variety of genres. It is a community art space – a working artist studio and professional artist gallery supporting and promoting the arts where visitors gather year round to enjoy changing exhibitions, classes and workshops and performances.  The Center is part of the HyArts campus of town owned properties-which includes Sarah Holl Artspace at 46 Pearl Street and Gallery Artrio and Bass River Pottery at 50 Pearl.   50 Pearl was once a residential home and has a rich history as a gathering place for local artists.  Playwrights and poets congregated at the home for lively readings and original Vernon B. Coleman murals decorate the basement walls.
