Trip Advisor Excellence Award 2014
Penlee House has gained a national reputation for its exhibitions of Cornish art from the Nineteenth and early Twentieth centuries. This unique exhibition showcases contemporary local talent: professional artists, amateurs and total beginners have produced paintings, pictures, poetry and more. Filling the galleries alongside the pieces that inspired them, these modern works highlight not only the breadth of artistic skill in contemporary Cornwall, but the enduring power and relevance of these earlier works.
Admission is FREE for everyone throughout Penlee Inspired and also includes entry to Crafts for Christmas, a selling exhibition of work by members of Cornwall Crafts Association, so get along to Penlee House Gallery & Museum this Christmas for inspiration, enjoyment and – who knows – perhaps a bit of shopping!
