Norman Cornish: The Sketchbooks

Dennyson Stoddart Gallery, Palace Green Library

For the renowned north-eastern artist Norman Cornish MBE (1919-2014), sketching was second nature and an inherent part of his everyday life. This exhibition of little seen sketchbooks will present a new dimension to the artist’s practice, focusing on his observations of life, landscapes, and family, revealing the inner artistic processes behind some of his most iconic works.

This exhibition is supported by funding from Durham County Council and Arts Council England.
