George Sheridan was the creator of La Residencia’s Art Collection and the person who opened the hotel Art Gallery in 1984 and worked as its curator up until his death in 2008.
George Sheridan was born in
Newton (USA) in 1923. He studied
at the Boston Art College between 1940 and 1945 and furthered his art studies
in Europe between 1948 and 1952 in Cambridge, and in 1962 in Paris and Madrid.
In 1962 he became a
founding member of the Es Deu des Teix artists representing the most important
work of non figurative art of the time.
George settled in Deià in
1972 and was active until the end of his life. In 2006 Soller Museum organised a retrospective exhibition
which occupied the entire museum.
Thanks to the work and
dedication of George, many local artists have been able to survive. George constantly promoted their work
and saw the Serra de Tramuntana as a source of inspiration.
Were he alive today he would be
thrilled to know that it is now a UNESCO heritage site.
Sheridan, the artist’s widow, is organizing this unique show which opens at 12 noon on 9th September 2011 in
the hotel’s Albéniz Room, and will run until the New Year.
