In July 2018: An innovative programme to support Irish artists has been launched by boutique hotel, The Montenotte, this month.  The new Artist in Residence programme will support local artists through an exhibition at the hotel, communications to visitors about the work of the artist and a stay at the hotel to find inspiration in the relaxed surroundings of the luxury city centre hotel in Cork.  A collection of oil paintings by Patrick Cashin are now on exhibit at the Montenotte Hotel for guests and visitors to enjoy. 

Speaking at the launch of the Artist in Residence programme, The Montenotte General Manager Brian Bowler said, “We are proud to support local artists while also bringing unique and interesting works of art to the hotel for our guests and visitors to appreciate.  The programme is an interesting and ideal fit with our ethos of bringing unique offerings to our guests. These works of art add enormously to the hotel’s own art collection and will showcase new and exciting artists to our clientele.”

Born in New York, and now based in County Cork, Patrick Cashin has exhibited in London, New York, Sydney and Toronto.  His paintings, which use the sea and coast for inspiration, depict the built structures which depict people’s engagement and presence within coastal terrain.  The theme of the lighthouse is central to the current exhibition at the Montenotte Hotel, manifesting the mysterious presence and narrative of lighthouses in their own right.  The most significant painting in this collection at the Montenotte is The Fastnet, which sees the depiction of this iconic lighthouse off the County Cork coast.

ST PATRICK'S DAY

ST PATRICK'S DAY CELEBRATION AT HOME

For the second time we will be celebrating our national holiday in a lockdown. The nation’s favourite bank holiday normally brings out young and old, flags of tricolour in hands, dressed in green, faces painted in green, white and orange, marching in parades big or small, loud music playing, oh the thrill of being Irish but this year we just need to all this at home and in our back gardens.

The national flag of Ireland is intended to symbolise the inclusion of and the aspirations for unity between people of different traditions of this island, in 2021 more then ever the unity to fight the pandemic is stronger than ever. It has been such a long road but let’s be hopeful that soon we will be able to hold friends and family close again and get back to doing what we love.
