Behind The Scenes: The Norman Cornish Centenary Lecture
15 February, 2.15
Booking required
Norman Cornish MBE was perhaps the most significant artist to emerge from the North East of England in the 20th Century. Through his work, he recorded one of the most important passages in English history. As part of the regional celebrations of his centenary, his son-in-law Mike Thornton will present this illustrated talk. Revealing predominantly unseen works, it will cover many of the key moments in the artist’s career, including important commissions such as The Durham Miners Gala Mural and his works for The Port of Tyne Authority. Mike will also share images of life in Norman’s family home of Spennymoor during the 1950s and 60s and works from his trip to Paris in 1967. This is a story of the artist’s great determination and resilience to overcome adversity and prejudice to become one of the region’s most celebrated artists.

This workshop, led by Gary Lintern, is aimed at all photographers including absolute beginners. You will have private access to The Bowes Museum and its grounds. It is scheduled for a moonless night, during astronomical darkness. The building’s floodlights will be turned off, so (weather permitting) you will be able to get shots of the night sky, including stars and the Milky Way, over the roof of the museum.
