As part of a countywide celebration, the centenary of local mining artist Norman Cornish’s birth is marked in a special exhibition co-curated by members of the local community.

Norman Cornish was an English artist known for his paintings of mining community life. This exhibition pays tribute to his life and work, with members of the local community co-curating the display. Artworks have also been chosen by Cornish's children, adding a special insight into their father's work.

The temporary exhibition sits alongside the Mining Art Gallery’s permanent collection featuring further work by Norman Cornish, as well as other mining artists such as Tom McGuinness, Tom Lamb and Bob Olley.
