A Casket of Pearls at Penlee House

Kids workshops in art gallery

Way down in Penzance we have Penlee House, internationally renowned for its collection of British art, in particular, from the Newlyn School of artists. It was in 1997 that the gallery received a much needed refurbishment and has consequently become a leading regional museum.

This month until the 3rd of June the gallery and museum are running an exhibition entitled 'A Casket of Pearls: Celebrating 20 years of collecting'. You can see how their collections have developed over the two decades with a chance to view fine and decorative art, social history, photography and archaeology.

There is also free family fun with drop-in workshops every Saturday from 2.30pm-3.30pm, great to get the kids involved! Oh and you can get a locals pass too.

Do check out their website to find out about the Newlyn School of art, fascinating to think in 1884 this little fishing village could count 27 skilled artists among its residents!
