New works by John F. Murphy from Cape Cod, Williamstown, Nantucket and Maine.
John attended the Butera School of Art. In 1969 John opened The Land Ho! For a time, his restaurant became his artistic creation. Later he connected with master painter Robert Douglas Hunter who was a mentor and friend for over three decades. John also paints regularly with Neil Drevitson and Thomas Dunlay.
Though primarily self-taught, John attributes his ability to working with and learning from some of America’s most talented artists. John’s supportive family and talented peers have enabled him to gradually focus more time on his painting, even as he expanded the Land Ho! to Costa Rica and Harwich. John has shown successfully in Paris as well as in the United States. He is a member of the Copley Society of Art and his joyful work can be found in many prestigious collections.
