During the month of October, the Stoneham Public Library has the distinctpleasure of exhibiting the work of the late Daniel C. Towse. This is a lovely exhibit of Dan’s paintings, all with a nautical theme. Dan Towse was a lifelong Stoneham resident who graciously gave to his community the gift of a lifetime of dedicated service. Dan was a veteran of WWII. He served in an impressive number of varied civic positions. He was Town Moderator, State Representative, Conservation Commissioner and Whip Hill Park Trust Administrator. As an artist, Dan choice of subject matter reflects his lifelong love of sailing. As a young man, he raced on Lake Quannapowitt and Boston Harbor. Dan hand built wooden sailing dinghies for a youth program. He enjoyed sailing his boat, “Sea Fever” with his family throughout the New England waters. In retirement, Dan spent twenty winters in Florida with his wife Marian on their sailboat, “Dreamer”. His art conveys the splendid beauty of ships and evokes our human affinity with the ocean.
