Exhibition dedicated to the turbulent seas of Mount’s Bay.

There can be few better settings for a solo show exploring the powerful vitality – and volatility – of the sea than The Old Coastguard in Mousehole. The awesome power of the sea and its life-giving qualities are the subject of oil painter Penny Rumble’s solo show, which will hang in the restaurant and bar area at The Old Coastguard until the 11th June.

Penny’s work is distinctively modern, yet her canvases look fantastic when juxtaposed with antique furniture – another passion of hers. Alongside her husband Simon, Penny made her living as an antiques dealer when the couple lived in the Cambridgeshire fens before their move to Cornwall. Their present home near Penzance, a lovingly renovated Cornish farm dwelling with outhouses-turned-workshops, now houses the antiques business as well as Penny’s studio.

We recently went to visit Penny in her studio to capture some photographs of her at work for a feature in Drift magazine. 

The exhibition began on 1st April and runs until the 11th June, with a ‘Meet the Artist’ talk scheduled for 20th May.
