    THE rugged coastline and wild landscape of west Cork has long fascinated artists.  William Crozier, the Scottish born artist who died on July 12 aged 81, had spent part of the year at his west Cork home since 1984 and was an important figure for local artists.  His work was characterised by vibrant colours which became associated, in many minds with the west Cork landscape.
    Auctioneer Morgan O’Driscoll will conduct a sale of work by west Cork based artists in Skibbereen on Sunday, July 31 at 5 p.m.  This will be a no reserve sale. It follows on from several successful no reserves sales organised by Morgan O’Driscoll in latter months. The catalogue, which is on-line, features 111 works.  Here is a small selection:
