Artist of the Month: Howard Thomas

As a native Cape Codder, Thomas grew up in Centerville, attended Barnstable High School and enjoyed learning to draw in my high school art classes under the direction of Vern Coleman, a local Cape Cod artist.  After graduation, he joined the 173rd Airborne Brigade serving both on Okinawa and in Vietnam. Post-enlistment he returned home, raised a family, and recently retired as Director of Operations for Cape Cod Academy.  He now spends time drawing Cape Cod and New England historical landmarks as the subject of his work.

Check out his artwork (which is available for purchase) and learn more about the series in our front lobby. Art up throughout May.
