Brewster Ladies' Library


For the month of September in 2017, the Brewster Ladies’ Library is pleased to present an art show by Howard Bonington.

Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1929, Howard L. Bonington is a retired architect who was active in the profession in New York City for more than 40 years. Upon retiring to the Cape, Bonington continues to expand his interest in drawing private residences, landmarks, scenes, plants, animals, and airplanes. When traveling, he usually substitutes a sketchbook for a camera. His collection of on-site drawings numbers in the hundreds. While using watercolor and colored pencil on occasion, he has specialized in black and white pen & ink drawings. He enjoys testing its reliance on the limited graphic options available, such as weighted line work, textures and contrasts to achieve the desired effects.

The public is invited to meet the artist at a reception at the Library on Saturday, September 9th from 2 to 4 PM. In addition, Bonington will be returning to the Library on Thursday, September 28th at 2 PM to speak about his book, “Aviation on Cape Cod.”

This exhibit is sponsored by the Brewster Ladies’ Library. Please call the Library at (508) 896-3913 before coming, due to the exhibition room sometimes being in use for a program and not open for viewing.
