Private View at the Brook celebrates Paula Rego: The Ultimate Story Teller

"We interpret the world through stories... everybody makes in their own way sense of things, but if you have stories it helps." Paula Rego

Guests perused the idea at the Brook's recent private view to launch the gallery’s current exhibition ‘Paula Rego: The Ultimate Story Teller’ which runs to 10 August. Paula Rego, internationally renowned contemporary artist, is exhibiting her etchings and lithographs spanning over 20 years at the Brook in Budleigh Salterton.

Joined by acclaimed British contemporary artist, Chris Orr MBE RA, guests admired Paula Rego's skill at cleverly entwining her own experiences with those of dreams and fantasies. It's heady stuff for the art lover or just a glorious take on a fairy tale theme for some - in either case, guests enjoyed meeting Chris Orr, a distinguished artist in his own right, and the evening slipped by in celebratory fashion.
