16 November 2019 - 23 February 2020

We’re truly honoured to be holding the first major retrospective exhibition of works by a North East artist who’s one of the most respected and best loved of the 20th Century.

Norman Cornish: The Definitive Collection, celebrates the centenary of the acclaimed County Durham artist’s work and opens almost 100 years to the day of his birth in Spennymoor.

Visitors will be able to see more than 60 of his works, some of which haven’t been shown publicly before.  They’ll include drawings, pastels and oil paintings from both public and private collections and form the most comprehensive collection of his work ever assembled that tells the captivating story of his enduring career.
