March - May. New Topographies. Saul Hay Gallery - Manchester - Group Show
In ‘New Topographies’ artists explore how we connect emotionally with landscape asking us to question the very nature of beauty and to review our environment with a fresh perspective. The exhibition contrasts the temporality of urban landscape with the ageless grandeur of mountains and wilderness.

April - June. The Gallery At St Georges House - Bolton - Solo Show
Highs & Lows: A West Highland Fling (Winter 2016 - Winter 2017) represents an ongoing emotional investigation for the Manchester artist. It was in the ancient grandeur of the Scottish mountains that Orpin first found perspective after the death of her father. The lochs offered stillness and the waterfalls a reassuring predictability. The paintings presented in this show reflect and respond to a longing for a sense of permanence.
