Penlee House has gained a national reputation for its exhibitions of Cornish art from the Nineteenth and early Twentieth centuries. This unique exhibition showcased contemporary local talent: professional artists, amateurs and total beginners 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.
