The Penwith Gallery

The Penwith Gallery is home to the Penwith Society of Artists in St.Ives. It's set in a former pilchard packing factory giving it an interesting atmosphere, you can't smell the fish, but there's a lovely feel about it, and we were warmly greeted and chatted to once we arrived which makes such a difference.
It made me think about Swindon Open Studios days, and how important it is for me to remain welcoming and interested in visitors.
Here's the understated entrance:
 And once inside the main gallery housed a great member's exhibition:



 This piece was really attractive, it's By Chris Buck, 'For Hours on End' and it's bronze on slate
And on the way out, I noticed the courtyard:
There were two others areas, a small one, and a very large, former underground car park where a new exhibition was being set up.
Definitely a good gallery to include on any St.Ives trip.
