Norman Cornish
Exhibition

Born in 1919, in Spennymoor, County Durham, Norman Stansfield Cornish was 65 when he was persuaded to write his autobiography. He called it 'A Slice of Life' and indeed it was just that although one could say that it was brought into being a little prematurely given that a further three decades of remarkable activity were to follow its publication.

In the prologue to 'A Slice of Life', he describes the Dean and Chapter Colliery where he was to work, as "lying at the foot of a huge pit-heap which reminds one of a volcano, not only because of how it looks, but also because its contents have been spewed out of the depths in similar fashion". Imaginative and poetic perceptions like this one are present throughout his paintings and drawings which, one might reasonably claim, are his true autobiography.

Reflecting on his work he wrote "I made drawings of pub workers in days past because l was fascinated by the men standing at the bar drinking and talking, or sitting playing dominoes. I was attracted by the wonderful shapes that they make in their varied attitudes. I also realised that life would change in some ways. The local collieries have gone, together with the pit road. Many of the old streets, chapels and pubs are no more. A large number of the ordinary but fascinating people who frequent these places are gone. However, in my memory, and l hope in my drawings, they live on. I simply close my eyes and they all spring to life"

Explored through reconstructions, objects excavated along Hadrian's Wall and the Vindolanda Trust’s inspiring interpretations of army life including the exclusive 3D Edge of Empire film, the museum pays unforgettable homage to Rome's military accomplishments in Britain.

Miners' Gear by Tom Newstead
Exhibition

This unique collection of work is hand crafted from oak, silver birch and a railway sleeper from Avenue Pit in Seaton Delaval.

" I was born the first son of a coal miner from a fishing village called Seaton Sluice in Northumberland and left school at the age of fifteen to become an apprentice boat builder at Lambies. I worked with a tradesman who taught me his craft and who, to this day, I would describe as 'truly remarkable'. After concluding my apprenticeship, l joined the merchant navy for 11 years as an assistant carpenter. This enabled me to travel the world. This was an invaluable experience for me, in the exposition of my craft. Each new continent, land and city brought with it a new perspective within which l saw different art forms which l could later work with and manipulate into a style that l now uniquely stamp as my own."
