RTE’s Mar­ian to open ex­hi­bi­tion

Bray People - - Special Report -

THE RTE ra­dio pre­sen­ter Mar­ian Fin­u­cane will open an ex­hi­bi­tion of oils called ‘Present Past’ by Hi­lary Or­pen on Thurs­day Oc­to­ber 16 at the Sig­nal Arts Cen­tre.

Hi­lary’s work is about foot­prints; the foot­prints of peo­ple, com­mu­ni­ties and cul­tures.

The work for this ex­hi­bi­tion is in­spired by two un­in­hab­ited is­lands off the North Mayo coast.

Apart from the sav­age beauty of the place, and the rich­ness of an­i­mal and bird life, the is­lands lay claim to a sur­pris­ing and colour­ful past.

Not so long ago life off the west coast in­volved piracy, idol­a­try and an al­most to­tal dis­re­gard for the forces of law or church.

Hi­lary worked as a tele­vi­sion pre­sen­ter and pro­ducer be­fore be­com­ing a full time artist. She stud­ied at UCD, NCAD and at the Academia di Belli Arte in Bologna.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will run from Tues­day Oc­to­ber 14 to Sun­day Oc­to­ber 26.
