Hilleary was associated with the Washington Color School.[6][7][8] His work follows the general nature of color-field painting but is largely concerned with the manipulation of sequential stripes.

40" X 40"

Hilleary received critical acclaim throughout his career.Early in his career, the art critic Barbara Rose lauded Hilleary's "assured geometric abstractions" in an article in Artforum magazine, while The Washingtonian called his work "particularly promising".[12] Late in his career, the prominent art critic and professor Donald Kuspit described Hilleary as a "master of color". And Washington Post art critic Paul Richard said that Hilleary was "admired enthusiastically by some of the smartest art minds in town."

Hilleary "is best known for his commitment to creating harmonious, expertly executed canvases in variations of a signature style."His signature style revolved around his "interest[] in patterns as well as colors—patterns not simply as decorative displays of color, but as on intricate arrangement of what the Futurists called lines of force."Despite the centrality of lines and angles to his work, though, Hilleary has been described as a Lyrical Abstractionistartist. That description may reflect the evolution of his art. Washington Post art critic Benjamin Forgey observed that Hilleary "at first adopted the then-reigning hard-edge format utilizing relatively subdued optical color combinations" but over time his work evolved to show a "gradual release of lyrical energies, in which softer colors and thin, translucent overlays of paint have been added to the logical structure of interlocking vertical and diagonal stripes."[

Hilleary's work is found in numerous museums, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Phillips Collection, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Buenos Aires.
