DECEMBER 2nd – 5th
Thursday 2nd – In conversation with Hilary’s family – From 2pm
Saturday 4th – Opening Event – From 2pm
On Thursday and right through the weekend we are hosting this extraordinary exhibition featuring the work of Hilary Sims. Hilary was an amazing colourful character whose work reflected the eclectic nature of her passionate approach to her art, and we have tried to capture that in this one-off exhibition.
Hilary’s style of textures, patterns & bold colours reflects her life’s journey. Her landscapes are born from a desire to feel connected to place, and self. Her paintings are personal and reflective of her quirky yet confident and positive approach to life.
Born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1966, Hilary migrated to Australia with her family at 6 years of age. She lives in the Blue Mountains and it has been her home for over 45 years. Considering herself as “a late starter to painting”, Hilary began her art practice after her two daughters were grown and independent. She first ventured into painting as a form of therapy, but soon discovered her thirst of learning and developed her own style.
Hilary has done workshops with established artists, exhibited her work around NSW in Galleries and has been a finalist in numerous competitions.
Join us if you can on the two special days, Thursday and Saturday when between 2 and 4:30 pm Hilary’s daughters Melissa and Kate will be answering your questions about Hilary’s portrait work, the flowers, and offering stories from an amazing life.
SHE WILL BE DEARLY MISSED
