The Penicuik Turner Prize Exhibition opens on Saturday the 1st September from 2.00pm till 4.00pm. It is then open from 10.00am till 4.00pm Monday till Saturday and will close with the announcement of the winners on Sunday the 9th September from 2.00pm till 4.00pm.
This is always a popular exhibition with many varied art works on display nearly all of which are available to purchase at very reasonable prices. Viewers are also encouraged to vote for their favourite piece and the artist of the most popular piece is awarded the People’s Choice Trophy at the end of the exhibition.
The closing day of the exhibition will also be the day that our judge, Sandy Wood, will announce the winner of the Penicuik Turner Prize. This is always a tense moment for all the exhibitors who would all dearly like to be the winner. However this is a good-natured competition between friends and the judges in the past have chosen some unexpected but always worthy winners.
