Artist of the Month: Michael McGuire
November has started with a boom! Please join us for our second event this week as we welcome our November artist, Michael McGuire and his ethereal landscape paintings.
Here's a few words from the artist's bio:
Michael McGuire’s artwork is a result of many influences, both from the art world and from everyday life. Born in Waltham, MA, and growing up in Lexington. MA, he graduated from Massachusetts College of Art with a BFA in Sculpture. When he relocated to North Truro with his family 20 years ago he switched to painting. This was partially due to space limitations of moving from a very large studio in SouthBoston, to working in a small cottage shared with his three small children. Painting has been his main focus ever since. As a working artist he made ends meet by working primarily as a builder, but also as a bartender, rubbish man,truck driver, cab driver, and many other jobs. Thirteen years ago, his artwork became his sole occupation and he opened McGuire Gallery in Provincetown. He also shows currently in New York City, Nantucket, Vieques PR, and Mexico. His artwork is in collections all over the U.S. as well as, Mexico, the UK, Germany, Russia, and Canada.
