Norham: Turner’s View – a Contemporary View
26th May 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3rd June 2019 @ 4:00 pm
An inspiring art exhibition will be taking pride of place in Norham Village Hall, 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 who have brought their vision of Norham to life, in both prints and paintings. 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.
There will also be showings of Sky Arts’ ‘Tate Britain’s Great British Walks; Turner into the View Walk’.
This initiative coincides with the launch of Norham’s new Turner Heritage Trail – a great initiative for Northumberland Day to celebrate. Both this and the local schoolchildren’s art display in Norham Church are free to visit.
Please note that the Norham Village Hall exhibitions will be open from 2pm to 4pm on Saturday May 25 and also 6pm to 8pm from May 28 to May 30.
