This year we have 69 entries for the popular Penicuik Turner Prize competition. It will be judged by the sculptor David Annand on Saturday the 28th September. This year we also have a 'People's choice' voting ballot box in the exhibition room, and the winner for that will be announced on same day by Mose Hutchison, the Penicuik Citizen of the year.

We hope you will have ample opportunity to view the art works live
  •  during the day when the show should be open from 10am - 4pm, Monday to Friday, unless there has been a gap with the exhibition sitters. There might be classes going on in the room, but you can view the works all the same
  • during Penfest events held in room 1 - check program and venue here

You can also see photos of all the entries on this album, (at least I hope there are all of them to be seen over there? Please give a shout if you find one missing!) and you see a few examples in the slide show below.

Please bear in mind that this slide show and the above linked album is an amateur photographic sharing of very detailed art works. Plus the reflection in the glass of framed art also doesn't help give you the best impressions! ;-) 
If you want to really appreciate the art and especially if you wish to buy a piece for your own collection or as that special gift for someone special: please come and see for yourself :-)
And remember the best coffee in town and other nice things to eat and drink are available in the Gallery Cafe with Cafe Garden, Monday to Saturday, 10am - 4pm.

Looking forward to see who will be the runner-ups and who snaps that unique piece for their collection!
