SIR WILLIAM ORPEN
Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones has confirmed he will unveil the Sir William Orpen Bronze Sculpture by Rowan Gillespie in Stillorgan at 5.30pm on the 29th Sept 2016.
Local restaurants will serve trays of snacks during the unveiling ceremony.
Followed by an exhibition of paintings by William Orpen and some by his father Arthur Herbert and by his mother Anne in St Brigid's Church Hall and a one-hour concert in St Brigid's Church Stillorgan by the St Columba's School Choir, Niamh Murray (Soprano), Damien Top (Tenor, from France), Fiachra Trench (Piano) and Cormac Breatnach (Whistle).
During the same week there will be a series of tours on William Orpen in the National Gallery and The Hugh Lane Gallery.
A few other events are planned and will be dependent on numbers who wish to attend. Details to follow.
Two TV stations (so far) have expressed an interest in covering the unveiling and at least 20 of William Orpen's descendants will attend, many from overseas.
I do hope you can join us.
