Kith and Kinship: Norman Cornish and LS Lowry

Mon – Sun, 10am – 5pm

The Bowes Museum

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 Bowes Museum builds 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.
