Centenary: Castlegate House Gallery
Venue: Castlegate House Gallery
Dates: July 6th to July 27th
Castlegate House Gallery in Cockermouth represents the estate of Norman Cornish and sustains a longstanding connection with Norman’s work in Cumbria where he first exhibited in 1951 at Tullie House in Carlisle with LS Lowry and Victor Pasmore: The Border Arts Society- Northern Realists. In 1963, Melvyn Bragg began a relationship with Norman and his work when he produced his first documentary for BBC TV, Two Border Artists. This featured the work of Sheila Fell and Norman Cornish and was the beginning of several other projects which followed between 1973 and the publication of Norman’s autobiography in 1989.
