Artist Exhibition: Ronald Tinney

Date/Time

Aug 16, 2014 to Sep 4, 2014
10:00 AM

Description

Sorelle Gallery is pleased to announce our upcoming exhibition featuring paintings by Cape Cod artist Ronald Tinney. Tinney’s work will be displayed from August 16 to September 4, 2014 at Sorelle’s New Canaan Gallery.

A long time Signature Member of the American Society of Marine Artists, Tinney creates timeless, vibrant and luxurious seascapes which perfectly emote moments of summer on the coast. Tinney's personal view is inspired by the classic New England coast and much of his work is painted directly on site or from sketches done en plein aire. This is where his artistic process begins, but most pieces are generally completed in his studio where Tinney is very selective about what he decides to include in his compositions. His paintings offer the viewer a much needed escape from the chaos and fast pace of contemporary life, and exude a relaxed familiarity and serenity that we so often seek.

Through the serene calmness and transparent light he finds in his subject matter, Tinney brings forth the innermost beauty found in nature. While his paintings are based on coastal scenes that he witnesses in nature, they are described with titles like Splendor of Solitude, Melody of Tranquility, Calm, Gentle Allure, Resting, etc., and it is very apparent how involved he is with projecting moods that exist only in human nature.

Tinney has received a BA Degree from Penn State University and a Juris Doctor Degree from Ohio Northern University. In recent years he has studied with noted marine artists Donald Demers and Joseph McGurl. He also continuously seeks to challenge himself artistically by taking workshops with Robert Douglas Hunter, Arnold Desmaris, Gregg Kreutz, Sergio Roffo, Jean Lightman and other established artists. Tinney is actively involved with his local art community and has previously served as President and Director of the Cape Cod Art Association.

Tinney is also a Professional Member of the International Society of Marine Painters and a Juried Member of the Copley Society. He has exhibited work at the Maritime Gallery in Mystic Seaport, the Ventura Maritime Museum in California, the Coos Maritime Museum in Oregon, and the Oil Painters of America National Show in New Mexico. He has exhibited in solo shows at the Cape Museum of Fine Art, the Cahoon Museum of American Art, and the Guild of Boston Artists.
