McCarthy is a graduate of The Boston Museum of Fine Arts School. As an owner and Artist in Residence of NEW ART on NEWBURY, a gallery introducing local artists, he started his “Boston After Dark” series. He focused in particular on the CITGO sign, because of its clean graphics, bright colors and reflections. He was commissioned by Soundtrack Studios to paint portraits of musicians for their Boston Recording Studios and actors for their N.Y. Film Studios. McCarthy paints with an impressionist’s palette, painting cityscapes, landscapes, still lifes and portraits. Thirty years of advertising art directing has given him a strong sense of composition and color.
