Get inspired and be exhibited at Penlee House Gallery

Penlee House Gallery & Museum is asking for contributions to it’s 2014 ‘Penlee Inspired’ exhibition and YOU could be part of it.

Following on from the success of the two previous ‘Penlee Inspired’ exhibitions, Penlee House Gallery & Museum will be hosting an exhibition of works by members of the public inspired by the collections and exhibitions of Penlee House. All ages and abilities will be represented, from complete beginners to established artists, and their work will be hung alongside works from Penlee’s collection and those loaned from other galleries and museums.

Contributions are invited from individuals, groups, schools and colleges, and can be in any medium—including paint, collage, textile, sculpture, photography, film and animation. Creative writing is also welcome. Submitted work can be representational or abstract, the only thing we ask is that the collections or exhibitions at Penlee House are the inspiration behind all contributions.

Penlee House is most famous for its paintings by the Newlyn School artists, but the collections extend beyond that to archaeology, social history, textiles and photography, giving plenty of scope for some exciting and original artwork. In addition, during the year, Penlee exhibits many works from museums and galleries throughout Britain. This pack contains details of the selection criteria, and information and application forms for individuals/groups and schools/colleges.
