Centerville Library Featured Artist–April
Tyler Dickow


A multi-disciplinary artist, Tyler’s work takes the form of paintings, murals, drawings and wood burnings. Focusing on meticulous technique and craft, Tyler’s work is heavily influenced by vintage Americana, monochromatic color schemes, and classical painting. An interest in fringe characters and historical icons often provides the foundation for his work.

Tyler is originally from Massachusetts. He briefly studied Graphic Design at the
New England Institute of Art. After dropping out of art school, he relocated to Australia and then New Zealand where he worked as muralist among other jobs.

Tyler is currently writing and illustrating a book about his travels on the
Appalachian Trail, which he completed on November
3rd 2018.

His work will be on display and for sale in the front reading room of the library.

Want a tour of Centerville? Download the App!

In anticipation of our 150th anniversary, we’ve created a walking tour that not only gives a little history of the library, but a look back at what makes Centerville unique. Thanks to our partnership with Mass Center for the Book, an organization dedicated to serving libraries, we’ve created a 45 minute tour that begins and ends with the library and includes information on the buildings and places around Centerville. Narrated by a CPL Board member, with research by Britt Beedenbender, the walk takes you on a leisurely stroll, describing stops along the way. Download the app MassBookTrails, choose local tours—Centerville, head to the library and enjoy your tour. MassBookTrails can be found in the app store and through iTunes. It’s also available on the web at massbooktrails.oncell.com

Passes for CLAMS patrons

Two 2-for-1 passes are available at the library the day before the opening performance of Main Stage and Black Box Theatre productions.
Passes are first come,first served.
In fairness to others, we reserve the right to limit passes to 3 passes per patron per season.

After receiving the pass, you must contact CCA to reserve seats for a performance.
This program is made possible thanks to a memorial gift from the family of Pat Andres, lover of theatre and the arts, and to the
Cotuit Center for the Arts.
