Norham: Turner’s View
May 25 @ 10:00 am - June 3 @ 4:00 pm
Two inspiring art exhibitions will be taking pride of place in Norham Village Hall and Norham Church, to celebrate the village’s links to the artist JMW Turner over the course of the Northumberland Day celebrations.
The village hall will have a display of news produced works of art, some of which will be for sale, produced by local well-known artists. Additionally, there will be some older pieces, owned by residents. What all will share is the fact that all will either be of Norham, or be in the style of JMW Turner, or both. This will celebrate Turner’s connections to Norham and, indeed, the fact that it was his paintings of Norham Castle that set him on the road to fame.
Meanwhile, in Norham Church, there will be another exhibition of artworks in the style of Turner, produced by the pupils of a number of local schools.
Both of these initiatives coincide with the launch of Norham’s new Turner Heritage Trail – a great initiative for Northumberland Day to celebrate. Both are also free to visit.
