Dear Editor, Penlee House Gallery & Museum in Penzance will be staging an exhibition tentatively called The Birmingham Boys from June to September 2011.
The exhibition will look at around 20 artists who originated from Birmingham and went on to work as part of the Newlyn School.
It will focus mainly on Walter Langley, Edwin Harris, William Wainwright, William Banks Fortescue, William Breakspeare and Frank Richards, but we also hope to include works by lesser-known artists.
We are keen to hear from anyone who would be prepared to lend paintings to the show.
All transport and insurance arrangements will be organised by Penlee House.
For a full list of the artists we are hoping to represent, please contact Katie Herbert, Curatorial Officer on 01736 363625, by email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by letter to Penlee House Gallery & Museum, Morrab Road, Penzance, Cornwall, TR18 4HE.
