Matching brushes: Father-son painters open new show in Provincetown by Susan Rand Brown

Michael, whose glowing high-key oils of Cape Cod’s iconic cottages reflect his sure eye and practiced hand, has lived in Truro for two decades, working for a while as a builder. When he started to sell enough of his work so that painting could become his sole occupation. Michael, who graduated from Massachusetts College of Art & Design in Boston with a bachelor’s degree in sculpture, opened his gallery in the east end of Provincetown. He chose a compact space near other galleries that had been an artist’s studio and before that a popular bar within the fondly remembered Flagship Restaurant.

Colin is an award-winning 2013 graduate of the Montserrat College of Art in Beverly. His loosely constructed paintings combine elements of realism and abstraction. In 2011, Colin started showing at the McGuire Gallery and elsewhere including New York City with his father.

Father and son also recently began showing together in Vieques and elsewhere in Puerto Rico.
