Exposure at Joe Cornish Galleries presents


Exposure at Joe Cornish Galleries returns on Thursday 23rd April with the excellent and award winning composer and singer-songwriter, Paul Mosley.

Hartlepool born but now based in London, Paul Mosley is renowned for his charming, intelligent and quirky music. Sophisticated piano arrangements combined with super catchy ear-worm songs, Paul's live shows are not to be missed. He is currently touring while writing for various London Theatre Productions. 

Thursday 23 April. (Doors open 6:30pm. Performance starts 7:30pm)

About Paul Mosley

Paul is an award winning composer and singer-songwriter who specialises in concept albums and puppet theatre 'because somebody has to".

He has played everywhere from Glastonbury to an Amsterdam Brothel and toured with many high profile artists, including Eddi Reader and Squeeze. At one point he even worked with an Icelandic farmers choir!

Paul's folk opera 'The Butcher' was two-years in the making and a huge critical hit receiving outstanding reviews from the British Music Press:

'A Darkened folk masterpiece'  

The Quietus

'Album of the Year'  


This record propelled his career and led to him writing scores for a number of London Theatre Shows including Little Angel Theatre's current production of The Furthest Adventures Of The Owl And The Pussycat by Julia Donaldson of The Gruffalo fame.

His superb latest album You're Going To Die! is a reflection on grief yet full of life affirming, intelligent and witty songs...

'An obscure journey into the mind of musical excellence...this is a work of art'


'Wonderful, fun, wistfully sad, excellent'


'Mosley's addictive songs are perfectly suited to intelligently dissecting big emotions... human and touching and musically excellent. A once in a lifetime album'

A Decade of Moments

Focus on... Mark Littlejohn
Saturday 15th February – Saturday 16 May 2020

We are delighted that respected photographer Mark Littlejohn is exhibiting with us for our first 'Focus on...' exhibition of 2020.

Mark has a unique approach to landscape photography, preferring the less popular view and concentraing his efforts to the earlier part of the day. He sees little point in constantly travelling in search of exotic locations, when a beautiful image can be right on your front door, which for Mark is Penrith in Cumbria located between the Eden Valley and Ullswater.

Come down and meet Mark when the exhibition launches at 2:00pm on Saturday 15th February.

New Joe Cornish print to raise funds for mountain rescue teams

Joe has been commisioned by the North York Moors National Park to provide the official photograph marking the 50th anniversary of the Cleveland Way which will be celebrated on 24th May.

It will be available to buy as a Limited Edition print of 50, all of which will be hand-printed, signed and numbered by Joe with all the profits being donated to both the Cleveland and the Scarborough & Ryedale mountain rescue teams.

The photograph depicts the reclaimed slabs on the approach to one of the most spectacular natural features along the 109-mile trail, the sandstone crags called the Wainstones near Stokesley.

Each 14 x 11 inch hand printed image will be on sale as a print only and will be priced at £195 and available from the Joe Cornish Gallery and the two North York Moors National Park Centres at Sutton Bank and Danby.

Framing can be arranged by contacting the gallery who will advise on costs. Please note all framed images must be collected directly from the Joe Cornish Gallery.

In addition a further 1000 greetings cards depicting the same image will also go on sale at the same outlets, with profits from each card sale also being donated to the mountain rescue teams.

Joe Cornish commented: "The Cleveland Way is the second oldest and one of the most loved of our great National Trails. This image frames a section on which I have walked countless times on my way to the Wainstones.”

Malcolm Hodgson, National Trail Officer adds: “With so many walkers and runners enjoying the Cleveland Way, it’s very apt that the two charities that work so hard to keep people safe should benefit from this year’s anniversary celebrations."
“We’re delighted to be working with Joe who has been a great supporter of the Cleveland Way over the years and is one of the most outstanding photographers to have captured the beautiful landscape along the route.”

Both mountain rescue teams are entirely self-funded and run by volunteers. They respond to around 150 call outs each year, rescuing people that are missing or injured within the North York Moors. They also devote many hours of their time to training and provide valuable additional support to the emergency services during weather-related incidents.


A striking new open air exhibition is being installed in Northallerton – celebrating pop icons from the 1960s.
Award winning Yorkshire filmmaker and photographer, Paul Berriff, has worked with Joe Cornish Galleries to create panels to grace the hoardings of  Treadmills  - the former Northallerton prison.
Supported by Northallerton BID and site owners the Central Northallerton Development Company Limited (CNDCL) the 150 metre long graphic features rare images of artists like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix as they toured Yorkshire venues at the start of their careers in the early 1960s.
“Inspired by big city developments around the world, we are excited to be using iconic pop culture to enhance the look of the town while the prison site redevelopment takes place” said Joe Cornish Galleries Manager Adam Richardson.
“Featuring over 60 images, this eye-catching display is a unique record of the rise of the burgeoning 60s pop scene here in Yorkshire. To accompany the unveiling, Paul’s ‘Rock Legends’ exhibition will also be on display at our Northallerton gallery.”
And Hambleton District Councillor Peter Wilkinson, Chairman of the CNDCL Board added: “This exhibition will form a striking landmark as we develop the Treadmills site – it features rare images which I am sure will attract lots of interest in the town.”
Julia Chance, of Northallerton BID said:
“Northallerton BID’s mission is to provide a quality appearance and environment in the county town and this joint project is the first of many public art installations we hope to put in throughout the county town.  Indeed we are devoting the month of August to Arts with a number of new public installations culminating in an Arts and Artisan Market on the High St on Sunday Aug 26th. Love Arts?  #lovenorthallerton www.lovenorthallerton.com “

Páramo & Miquelina - Beyond The Jacket

Páramo Directional Clothing have been supporters of Joe for a number of years and they have just announced that over 80% of their product range is now guaranteed Fair Trade.

For 25 years, they have been working in ethical partnership with the social enterprise Miquelina in Colombia. Miquelina works to empower exploited women and girls affected by Colombia’s civil conflict, in order to help them take their future into their own hands.

Páramo clothing manufactured by Miquelina, accounts for 80% of the product range, and includes all waterproofs, base layers and fleeces, which will now carry the Fair Trade First-Buyer-Label.

“I am delighted to welcome Páramo as the first company of the outdoor sector using the Fair Trade First-Buyer-Label on products supplied by Miquelina, which is a guaranteed Fair Trade producer organization in Colombia”, says Rudi Dalvai, President of the WFTO. “In the garment sector, too often there is flagrant violation of human and labour rights in producer countries, which often face significant challenges in terms of sustainable development. The long-lasting partnership between Miquelina and Páramo is an admirable example which shows that economic development and product quality can go hand in hand with human development and social justice”.

LEE Filters 100mm System Overview with Joe Cornish

Here at the gallery we sometimes get queries relating to Joe's photography equipment and while we do our best to assist, we know we are not as adept as Joe when it comes to succinct explanations on the whys and wherefores.

Therefore we thought it would be good idea to start regularly posting videos of Joe talking both about his photography and the equipment that he uses.

Whether you are specifically interested in filter systems or just curious to gain an insight into Joe's photography then we hope this first video will be of interest.

Joe has been using the LEE Filters 100mm System for over 25 years. In this video by our friends at LEE Filters, Joe shares his experience and gives an overview of all the hardware components and key filters, demonstrating the correct way to set everything up for best results.

Don't forget the Joe Cornish Gallery has a full programme of Photographic Workshops hosted by Joe and his colleague Mark Banks -
