Bolton Opening Night of Highs and Lows: A West Highland Fling

Bolton Opening Night of Highs and Lows: A West Highland Fling
Added: 23/04/2017

The Gallery at St George’s House is delighted to present a new solo exhibition, Highs and Lows: A West Highland Fling, by celebrated artist Jen Orpin.

The award-winning gallery in Bolton will celebrate the new exhibition, which will be on display to the public until July 4th 2017, at a special opening night on April 27th 2017 between 5.00pm till 7.00pm.

Sue Orpin’s latest body of work represents her ongoing emotional investigation; the paintings presented in the show reflect and respond to a longing for a sense of permanence.  It was in the ancient grandeur of the Scottish mountains that she first found perspective after the death of her father.  The lochs offered stillness and the waterfalls a reassuring predictability. 

The artist graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University in 1996 with a degree in Fine Art and she has been painting from Manchester-based Rogue Artist Studios since 1999. 

As well as exhibiting in various galleries, her work has been accepted into several North West Open Art exhibitions, one of which awarded her second prize and another a commendation.  

Her paintings have also featured in the last three series of BBC1 drama, Last Tango in Halifax and Russell T. Davies’ Queer as Folk.

     We were looking around for buildings we could lease and this is was one of the central offices which has been refitted. We could choose the interior layout that we wanted and any optional extras and we decided that Bank Quay House was the building that exactly suited our needs. The money per square footage is very competitive; the owners Martin & Peter are very approachable and very, very good at listening
