This year, we 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 Elizabeth Forbes’ ‘A Zandvoort Fishergirl’ to some more surprising, and less familiar, choices. Also on display, in the upstairs landing gallery and the local history gallery, was a selection of work produced by participants from the recent Heritage Lottery funded ‘Time Moveth – Not!’ workshops, run in partnership with Arts for Health.
