"A Passion for Penzance"
Pop Up Penzance have produced another inspired project - "A Passion for Penzance".
To quote from their press release....
Pop Up Penzance are storming into a new season of activity with an Arts Council-funded project celebrating artists’ and the general public’s photographic perspectives on Penzance. Launching in the windows of the Pop Up Shop alongside Lloyds Bank on Monday 14th April, the first of three week-long window exhibitions will be the work of Nik Strangelove. Subsequent exhibitions by Annie Bungeroth, and emerging artist Luke Brown will be shown in the windows on the following two weeks respectively.
Local people are invited to be inspired by these exhibitions, look with fresh eyes on the town and submit photos of “their own” Penzance for a large public exhibition to be opened on Monday 19th May.
“These window exhibitions give local people a chance to see exciting and diverse perspectives of our town, as seen through the eyes of local photographers, and we hope they will be inspired to take out their cameras, capture special images and submit photos for the public exhibition” said Maria McEwen of Pop Up Penzance, “the more photographs that are submitted, the more exciting the final exhibition will be. We are really excited to see what the people of Penzance come up with, she added”
