After beginning his painting career less than a decade ago during an oil painting class at the Cape Cod Art Association, Tinney has studied with guild members Sergio Roffo, Joseph McGurl, and Donald Demers. His work - represented by seven galleries, ranging from Florida to the North Shore of Mass. - was recently highlighted in a solo show, titled "Waters of Cape Cod," at the Cape Cod Museum of Art.

The Annual New England Representational Competition is the only show not limited to guild members.

"It's the one time of year when we reach beyond our four walls and very small, prestigious membership."
