Penton held a two-day Exhibition at the Village Hall, exhibiting works by local artists. Those displaying their work included Reggie & Cynthia Spiers, Cherry Howard, Bill Grandy, Geoff Crabbe, Daphne Alexander, Jan Cooper, Elizabeth Henley, Rosie Gibb and the Townson family.
"This was held as part of Test Valley Open Art 2003, and showed just how much talent there is in our small village. Some of the paintings of the village itself were among the most popular. All credit to Geoff Townson for the hard work he put into the Exhibition."
