Penlee Inspired Online 2020

Although Penlee House is temporarily closed due to Covid-19, the Gallery is open online!

Penlee House will be running Penlee Inspired Online, a testament to the skill and passion for art and creativity in our local and online community. The unique Penlee Inspired Online exhibition will showcase works inspired by collections and exhibitions past at Penlee House Gallery & Museum.

Professionals, amateurs and total beginners can join in and produce paintings, pictures, poetry and more. Penlee House will be displaying their favourites across their digital platforms. Tag them in your creations and use the hashtag #penleeinspired2020.

The exhibition is open to all ages. Closing date 1 May 2020.

How to join in:

Just take a photograph of your work and upload it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and tag Penlee House in any of your creations relating to the Penlee House collection.

Stuck for inspiration? Every week there will be a Penlee Inspired Challenge, this will be based on an item from the collection and we want to see how this item inspires you! This could be a sketch, poem, short story or painting.

The Penlee Inspired Challenge is meant to be a fun task that you can spend 5 minutes or 5 days doing. Every week Penlee House will be sharing their favourite Penlee Inspired Challenge responses so make sure to tag them and use the hashtag #penleeinspiredchallenge
