"Angela at First Tease" by Timothy McGuire.

In anticipation of the debut of Abiding by Beauty: Paintings by Timothy McGuire, The Artist Study, a gallery, academy and studio of thinkers, is presenting a special preview at Tripoli Gallery. On view, Thursday, March 24th through Sunday, March 27th, the exhibit showcases recent works from McGuire, who was born and raised in Buffalo, NY, and currently teaches, paints, and resides in Florence, Italy.

"Self Portrait" by Timothy McGuire.

"In our current times, it's essential to have some point of contact, some one issue you follow and understand," noted The Artist Study. "Let us open our apertures a little by allowing in more of something — Art, music literature, conversation, ideas, an encounter... or three."

Abiding by Beauty gives the viewer a look at nature and humanity through the artist's point of view. McGuire, a highly trained painter, uses instinct to observe and capture the splendor of his subjects. In works like "Montauk Fishing Boat" or "Coffee," he depicts the mundane elements of our daily lives, and manages to remind the observer how the simplicity of life can often be overlooked, but it's worth stopping and reveling in its magnificence. Influences from Manet and Whistler can be seen in pieces like "Venice Canal."

Quiet by nature, McGuire uses his artwork to share his story. "A man of few words, I prefer to communicate with painted images," he explained. "I always paint from life. Through the marks I make, I try to communicate some combination of what I see, how I feel, and what I think." His vivid imagery makes one almost feel like they were there during McGuire's journeys. "My paintings represent my best self; direct, honest, and open," McGuire added.

McGuire, who is the head academic instructor of The Artist Study, has had his artwork featured in several solo shows in Florence, as well as at Shain Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Ann Long Fine Art in Charleston, SC, and the New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain, CT. Abiding by Beauty is a curated collection of landscapes, seascapes, portraits and adored items from McGuire's explorations.

An opening reception for the exhibit will take place at Tripoli Gallery on Saturday, March 26th from 6 to 8 p.m.

Tripoli Gallery is located at 30a Jobs Lane in Southampton. For more information, visit www.theartiststudy.com.

Hampton Luxury Liner
Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didn’t change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
