THE QUIET MAN ART EXHIBITION

Yes, okay, okay. I know. I've been neglecting my blog again.....sorry.


In my defence, however, I have been working on a major project this last few months. Namely an exhibition based on my favourite movie of all time - The Quiet Man - which starred John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara.


I have managed to organise a one-man exhibition of my latest paintings and print ranges in none other than the pub made famous in the movie - PAT COHAN'S BAR.


The exhibition will take place over the weekend of Friday, Saturday, Sunday the 26th, 27th and 28th of August 2011 in the village of Cong (Innisfree in the movie), County Mayo, Ireland. This will coincide with a festival celebrating the 60th anniversary of the making of the movie in the village.


A special year indeed to visit and be part of the festivities. It would be wonderful if any of you could make it, but be sure to book your accommodation early as the village Hotels, B&B's and campsites will fill up fast.


Have a look at my new dedicated website for this project www.the-quiet-man.net


Let me know if you are planning to attend or wish to buy a painting or print as a memento of this special year. Contact me through the contact page on the website above or my personal website www.tjmiles.com
