An Evening of Art with John Morris

November 13, 2015

Join us next Friday, November 20th, from 7pm for an evening of Art with John Morris.  We are excited to be putting on an exhibition of John’s work in our reception area and hope that all of you can come to share a glass of wine, meet John himself and see his stunning works.  John is an artist made for Inchydoney.  His ethereal paintings of people down by the sea capture for us the magic we see all year round here on the Island.  He has an uncanny ability to portray that primal scene where humanity and the vast ocean come together on the shore.  His style, as he says himself, is “not to record things” in a deliberate, premeditated manner but rather to evoke “just the moment”.

John will be showcasing his latest collection entitled “West Cork Beaches” and it will be a unique opportunity to meet the artist in person to discuss or chat about your own thoughts and feelings when encountering his work. He has exhibited his work all over Ireland and as well as his seascapes he possesses an uncanny eye for capturing landscapes and people.

Why not make a night of it with our special overnight package.  The evening will begin with a wine reception followed by dinner in the Gulfstream Restaurant with overnight accommodation in a deluxe ocean view room and a full Irish buffet breakfast the following day for only €139 per person sharing.  During your stay, all our guests are welcome to avail of our heated seawater therapy pool, sauna, steam and relaxation areas of our wonderful Island Spa.

Here in Inchydoney we are well known for our involvement with local and Irish Artists and believe that this will be a very special night for all involved.  We hope you can join us and treat John to a very special West Cork welcome and do keep an eye out for our upcoming Art Events.  In the New Year, we will be honoured to have the worldwide renowned artist Graham Knuttel joining us for what should be an extravaganza of art! And in summer 2016 the very talented Majella O'Neill Collins will be exhibiting her new body of work.  So whether you are staying with us or wish to drop by please do come and be our guest next Friday 20th from 7pm.  We look forward to welcoming you.
