- Little Beach Gallery owner and Naukabout Gallery curator Jen Villa with a collection of her photographs.
There's more to Naukabout than just the music. Local artists will be showcasing their talents on stage and on tables sprinkled around the festival perimeter, creating an informal Naukabout Gallery. Curated by Jen Villa of The Little Beach Gallery in Hyannis, the Naukabout artists range from the wearable art of Tiffany Jazelle Fashion With Meaning and Banshii Organic Clothing to uniquely Cape Cod designs by Tessa D'Agostino and Rusty Shanty Productions. Prints by Falmouth glass and visual artist Andrew Hicks will also decorate the stage.
