One of Knutsford artist Edward Penny’s descendants is bringing an exhibition that tells the story of the artist’s life to Knutsford Heritage Centre.

One of the founder members of The Royal Academy, Edward Penny was born in Knutsford.

The exhibition will run from 1st May 2018 to 28th August 2018, from Tuesday to Saturday from 11am to 4pm and Sunday from 2pm to 5pm.

The exhibition will feature images of Edward Penny’s paintings and art from local artists such as Sheila Scholes, Emma Williams, Steve Wall and Diane Birkitt. There will also be demonstrations by artists Diane Bernice Tackley and Lindsay Brogan.

Val Bryant, from Knutsford Heritage Centre said: “This is an important exhibition, because not many people know about Edward Penny, and this is the first exhibition about him that I know of in Knutsford. We are inviting people to come and find out more about Edward Penny and his family.”
