The PCAA is a charitable body whose sole purpose is to promote and encourage the study, practice and knowledge of the Arts in Penicuik and surrounding district. We do this by mounting changing exhibitons in the cafe gallery and by organising regular concerts catering for all tastes. We aim to give a platform to local talent. We also bring the best talents to Penicuik to entertain and inspire local people at affordable prices. We encourage participation in the arts and the premises are used by several craft and art groups.
Due to the current global situation, the West Street Arts Centre is closed. We will be posting news of re-opening as soon as we are able to. Keep well!
Penfest will take place Saturday 26th September to Sunday 4th October 2020. If social distancing restrictions are still in place, we will run an online Open Art Exhibition for the Turner and People’s Choice prizes. There will also be at least one event online. We’ll keep you informed!
Meanwhile, all artists are invited to submit work for the exhibition, whether it will be “live” at the Arts Centre or online. You can find full details here and labels here.
News of exhibitions will appear here when the Arts Centre re-opens.
