Join Dr Robert McManners OBE and Gillian Wales, curators of the Pitmen and Prelates exhibition, to explore the life, work, and legacy of Norman Cornish.
Norman Cornish is one of the country’s most sought-after artists. Born in Spennymoor in 1919, Norman spent his working life at Dean and Chapter Colliery, Ferryhill. For 33 years he worked down the pit, before leaving to become a professional artist in 1966. Cornish is renowned for his iconic images documenting the life of a coal miner, and observation of social life in his hometown of Spennymoor.
