Experience rarely seen and often overlooked works by Northern artists, Norman Cornish and L S Lowry, in this powerful exhibition celebrating the region’s distinctive industry, emotive landscapes and playful recreation activities. Over 50 of the artists’ paintings, drawings and sketchbooks spotlight their friends, neighbours, passers-by and relatives in familiar scenes from across the region. Working with people from the communities they depicted the Museum will build new and varied interpretations of the works; bringing to life the relevance of these pieces today and how they resonate with a sense of place, hope and aspiration.
