Seeing the Landscape - Perspectives of Penwith exhibition Day 1

Tuesday 16th August 2022, 10:00am to 4:00pm

Our Seeing the Landscape project has been focussed on encouraging everyone to engage with the Penwith landscape through art and creativity with workshops, exhibitions and competitions.

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 Penwith to Carn Euny, top entries from our artistic and photography competitions, and the creations of families who participated in our 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 and there's no need to register, just turn up when you fancy!

We hope everyone will want to join us in celebrating the Penwith landscape, and how it has inspired creative souls through its beauty.

Location details: The Miner's Chapel is on Chapel Road in St Just, just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of town. Free parking is available in the car park on LaFrowda Close, and public toilets are available here too. St Just is also well served by buses from Penzance and St Ives, and we'd encourage you to use this option if possible as the town can be very busy in the summer. There are many pubs, cafes and shops where you can buy refreshments, however please do not bring any food or drink with you to the exhibition to protect the artworks.

We hope to be running some other activities alongside the exhibition - check our website and social media channels for more details!
