An exhibition of stunning artwork inspired by the Penwith landscape.
The Penwith Landscape Partnership’s Seeing the Landscape project has been focused on encouraging everyone to engage with the Penwith landscape through art and creativity.
Seeing the Landscape: Perspectives of Penwith celebrates the creativity that has resulted from the project. At the heart of display will be artworks showcasing and celebrating a Year of a Cornish Hedge by local artists Amanda Richardson and Sara Bevan. Their work highlights the beauty of these historic structures, and their importance to the Penwith landscape. Also on display will be works by local artists created as a response of a walk through the Penwith countryside from Chapel Carn Brea to Carn Euny, top entries from artistic and photography competitions, and the creations of families who participated in family art workshops.
The exhibition will be set against the magnificent backdrop of the Miner’s Chapel in St Just and be open daily on 16th – 29th August inclusive (opening times will be 10am – 4pm Monday – Saturday and 12 noon – 4pm on Sundays). The exhibition will be free to enter.
We hope everyone will want to join us in celebrating the Penwith landscape, and how it has inspired creative souls through its beauty. The Penwith Landscape Partnership is supported by National Lottery players through the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and we are grateful to them for their support.
