Artist’s Talk: John Eagle: A Personal and Artistic Appreciation by Tim Goulding
Beara Coast Hotel
Free

Artist Tim Goulding has lived and worked near Allihies since 1969. He was a founder and the first Chairman of Beara Arts Festival, at which the late John Eagle was a regular exhibitor.

John was best known as a photographer, but – with Tim’s encouragement and that of the late Maurice Henderson Fry – he developed his interest in oil painting, producing hundreds of landscapes and seascapes inspired by the hills and harbours of the Beara peninsula. John had several solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group shows, and his paintings are in collections all over the world.

On this, the closing date of the exhibition, Landscapes of a Life: The Paintings of John Eagle, Tim will discuss his decades-long friendship with John and their shared interests as visual artists.
