Norman Cornish: The Sketchbooks

16th November 2019, 10:00 to 23rd February 2020, 17:00, Dennyson Stoddart Gallery, Palace Green Library

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.
