PEN and ink landscapes of some of the region's best-loved buildings are to feature in a two-month exhibition at Durham Cathedral.

Northern Ink features works by Durham-born artist Naomi Blayney, featuring works inspired by Durham Cathedral's rose window, Hadrian's Wall and Ray Lonsdale’s Tommy sculpture.

Many of her pieces feature the Cathedral itself, the Castle and the river as well as a number of Durham’s beautiful bridges.

She creates both black and white and colour work, all produced in ink with a very fine pen, with each intricate piece taking many ours to complete.

The artist said: "The charm of Durham is hard to resist.

"To be invited to exhibit at such a prestigious venue is a very special honour".

Held in The Undercroft Restaurant, the exhibition will run throughout July and August, with a preview evening to precede the event on Monday.

Originals and prints will be available to purchase throughout the exhibition as well as mugs, cards and coasters featuring Naomi’s work.

The Undercroft Restaurant is open from 10am to 4.30pm daily and the Cathedral shop is open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5.30pm and from noon until 5.30pm on Sundays.
