Penfest 2020 Community art Project Gallery

Welcome to the slide show exhibition of the Penicuik Community Covid Response Art Project! Click the little white arrow in the box at the top right to start the show. To stop the show, click the two little white lines in the same box on the top right which appear when the show is running. You can also click the arrows at the sides to scroll through the art work.

You can view the real life exhibition in the window of the West Street Arts Centre – it’s well worth a look!

We are very grateful for the funds that the Penicuik Community Council gave us funds to put together 20 good quality Art Packs. We could then offer these art materials free to anyone of any age who wanted to take part. Participants were asked to think of life during Covid lockdown, what they did, how they felt, and then to paint their experiences on the small cards. A few people decided to offer other art work that they had done during lockdown. We are delighted with the results. I’m sure you’ll agree with us that it makes a wonderful and poignant display. Thank you to everyone who took part – they are listed below.
