Hi­lary’s new work goes on dis­play in Arts Cen­tre

Bray People - - Social Scene -

ONE OF the great things to come out of the re­ces­sion of the eight­ies was the great cre­ativ­ity that ran through the coun­try.

Maybe all some artists need is a bad econ­omy but in Hi­lary Or­pen’s case her tal­ent speaks and sells it­self.

Be­fore the grand open­ing of her lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion named Present Past at the Sig­nal Arts Cen­tre, Hi­lary had sold five of her paint­ings.

By the end of the evening she had sold a fur­ther six paint­ings, bring­ing the grand to­tal up to 11.

The RTE ra­dio pre­sen­ter Mar­ian Fin­u­cane and friend of Or­pen, who opened the ex­hi­bi­tion, spoke of her ad­mi­ra­tion for her friend’s work and her abil­ity to trans­fer her ideas so cre­atively on to can­vas. The ex­hi­bi­tion will run un­til Sun­day Oc­to­ber 26.
