LAST CHANCE TO SEE NATIONAL MASTERPIECES AND REGIONAL WONDERS Wednesday, 18 December 2019
Visitors to The Auckland Project this festive season are being given a final opportunity to enjoy treasured artworks at our two very different exhibitions.
Masterpieces by renowned 17th century French artist Nicolas Poussin, and community-curated artworks by beloved County Durham artist Norman Cornish, are on show until Sunday, 5 January.
Bishop Trevor Gallery is currently host to the National Gallery Masterpiece Tour 2019, sponsored by Christie’s, which features Poussin’s The Triumph of Pan.
Norman Cornish – A Slice of Life is on display at the Mining Art Gallery nearby and commemorates the work of one of the most celebrated artists of the North East.
During the Christmas period, both galleries will be open as normal until Sunday, 22 December and then again on Friday, 27 December, Saturday, 28 and Sunday, 29 December. They will open after New Year from Thursday, 2 January to Sunday, 5 January, which will offer the last opportunity to see these specific exhibitions before they end.
