The Annual Open Art Exhibition attracts entries from Penicuik and District and beyond and includes works by both amateur and professional artists. The work is of a very high standard and includes paintings sculpture and crafts. It is a great place to pick up an original art work at an affordable price.

Every year one artist is awarded the Penicuik Turner Prize as judged by a visiting judge. This year the judge is Alison Stewart.Ā  The trophy is called the Penicuik Turner Prize after its maker, Andrew Turner, blacksmiths,

For the past three years we have also awarded a prize to a work judged to be the best by public vote.

Come along and vote for your favourite, buy an original art work at affordable prices or just come to chat with friends surrounded by beautiful paintings.

The exhibition then remains open from Monday 4th September till Saturday the 9th September from 10.00am till 4.00pm.
