Art exhibition to be held at Durham Cathedral

North East inspired artwork is to go on display at Durham Cathedral.

The Undercroft Restaurant at Durham Cathedral is preparing to host a stunning exhibition of pen and ink drawings by local artist Naomi Blayney, on display from Tuesday, July 4 – Tuesday, August 29.

Naomi specialises in pen and inks of landscapes and architecture, and is particularly inspired by the North East of England. Her subjects are often famous North East landmarks, and this exhibition promises not to disappoint with new works featuring Durham Cathedral’s Rose Window, Hadrian’s Wall and the Tommy sculpture in Seaham.

Naomi is from Durham and continues to live and work there, with many of her pieces featuring Durham Cathedral, the Castle, and the River Wear as well as a number of Durham’s beautiful bridges.

Naomi Blayney said: “The North East of England is full of inspiration and much of my work features its well-known landmarks. Each piece takes many hours to complete and is a labour of love.

“Durham Cathedral is one of my favourite North East landmarks and I look forward to exhibiting my pen and ink drawings in the medieval Undercroft Restaurant.”

Original pen and ink drawings and prints will be on display in the Undercroft Restaurant and will be available for sale throughout the exhibition from the Cathedral Shop. Other merchandise, including mugs, coasters and cards, will also be available for sale.

A preview event on Monday, July 3, at 6.30pm will precede the opening of the exhibition. If you would like to attend the preview, please contact or call 0191 386 8669.
