George Sheridan at La Residencia

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.

Cecilie 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.

La Residencia offers this exceptional opportunity to view works which have never been shown before and to remember George Sheridan and his exceptional career as an artist.

The dates and opening times of the exhibition are as follows:

09.09.2001 – 30.09.2011  open daily from 10.00 a.m. – 2 p.m
01.10.2001 – 03.01.2012 open Wednesday – Sunday 10.00 a.m. – 2 p.m
