Artists by Themselves
No booking required; donations welcomed.
A new mini exhibition, Penlee House and the Branwells, is opening on 27 April 2019 at Penlee House Gallery & Museum in Penzance.
Who were the Branwells and how did they come to live in such a grand house? The story unfolds using archive photographs and artefacts brought together to show the family and their life in this elegant Victorian villa, built in the 1860s.
Visitors will be able to imagine themselves in Victorian Penlee House the moment they walk up the steps to the entrance, as window displays allow a peep into the dining room of Mr and Mrs Branwell.
The exhibition continues on the first floor with photographs, documents and belongings all related to the house and family, together with a beautiful watercolour of Penlee House by the late John Miller.
Penlee House and the Branwells runs until 1 June 2019 and is the work of a volunteer team of Citizen Curators.
We have a new team of Volunteer Tour Guides who will be offering insights into the temporary exhibitions at Penlee through a programme of short guided tours. Tours will be offered at 11am and 2pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the duration of each exhibition. The tours are included in the admission price to the Gallery and last between 30 and 45 minutes. No booking is required.
