The Mining Art Gallery

County Durham

The Mining Art Gallery takes visitors on an exploration of the art, culture, and context of the mining industry and its place in the history of County Durham.

Culture, life, and community sprung out from mining in the North East. The Mining Art Gallery provides a permanent home for the renowned Gemini Collection of Mining Art, which includes more than 420 works by prominent local artists such as Tom McGuinness and Norman Cornish.

These inspiring works showcase the resilience and courage of those who lived and worked in the mines, and give an incredible perspective on how human creativity and spirit can shine even in the darkest places.
