We're currently hanging the next exhibition, 'Penzance Selects', which opens on Saturday. The upstairs galleries are open as usual and admission is FREE. 


Penzance Selects

28 November 2015 - 9 January 2016

This year we've invited traders from Penzance's historic Chapel Street area to select their favourite works from Penlee's collection, giving their own unique take on the gallery's art and artefacts. A sumptuous array of over seventy pictures will be on show throughout the gallery, from much-loved works such as Elizabethe Forbes' 'A Zandvoort Fishergirl' to some more surprising, and less familiar, choices. Free admission.

Crafts for Christmas: a selling exhibition of Cornish crafts

28 November 2015 - 9 January 2016

Penlee House's annual selling exhibition of work by Cornwall Crafts offers the chance to find a special gift for a loved-one or a unique item for yourself, with a wealth of items by some of Britain's leading craftspeople, all of which are available for immediate purchase. Free admission.
