Tim Harney

Professor, FT

“Since my emphasis in drawing is on establishing relationships and form, I’m most excited when a student recognizes the means and ethic necessary for this humbling endeavor. Helping students to see through an approach in drawing that is not only rigorous and structural, but also empathetic, is truly rewarding.”

While he is a painter above all else, Tim is passionate about teaching. And after so many years of it, he is confident about the solid understanding his approach provides. “The drawing ethic along with the formal considerations I introduce puts the student in a stronger position to choose the visual language and means they wish.”

Tim was born in Montserrat’s hometown of Beverly, MA in 1955. He attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where he received his B.F.A. and M.F.A. In addition to Montserrat, he has taught painting and drawing at the DeCordova Museum School, the University of New Hampshire and the University of Massachusetts at Lowell.

Tim has exhibited in Boston, Seattle, New York , La Jolla and Boca Raton. In 2001, Tim’s work was included in the landmark exhibition: Painting in Boston 1950-2000 at the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park. Lincoln, MA. His work is in the permanent collection of the DeCordova Museum as well as in many private and corporate collections.
