Art UK Curations

Although we have been unable to open the Newlyn School Interiors exhibition as planned, why not check out the digital ‘taster’ version on the Art UK website?  Uploaded by Penlee’s Curator, Katie Herbert, as part of the Art UK’s new Curations programme, it gives a flavour of the exhibition that we hope to be able to open to the public in early autumn. The programme also allows the public to curate their own exhibition using the many thousands of images of paintings and sculptures housed in public collections so why not have a go yourself?
