Local talent is showcased

A focus on local talent will be the perfect start to 2015 when the work of Penicuik artist David Owen goes on display at the town’s arts centre.

The January exhibition, hosted by Penicuik Community Arts Association, will be held in the West Street centre.

The preview will be held on Sunday, January 4 from 2pm to 4pm with the exhibition running from January 5.

Born on a farm in Hertfordshire, David has lived in Cambridge, Lancaster and Barcelona before arriving in Penicuik with his wife Sue more than seven years ago.
