PENICUIK EXHIBITIONS

Heaps of exhibitions have been organised in Penicuik since the town grew dramatically in the 1960s and 1970s.  In the eighties, nineties and zeros, local volunteer charity Penicuik Community Arts Association put together regular and varied displays of children’s art, paintings, sculpture, crafts, architecture, and local history.  Four notable ones over the years were: Models and their Makers, the celebration of the buildings designed by F. T. Pilkington, the landmark historical exhibition Penicuik Looking Back, and Memorable Clothes.

From 2005 Penicuik Community Development Trust as a new volunteer charity has organised themed exhibitions almost weekly in the Cowan Institute, Penicuik Town Hall and Jackson Street School.  Some of them also go on display in Penicuik Library’s exhibition space.  Because its Saturday Town Hall displays are on rented space and must be taken down each day, the Trust made a series of efforts –thwarted at first:  Jackson Street school , Bank Mill  – and now successful:
