Library to feature Fresno State graduate’s art

Artist and Fresno State graduate Corky Normat’s artwork will be showcased in an exhibition at the Henry Madden Library.

The exhibition, “Places You Know, Places You’ve Been: 66 Years of Art by C. Normart,” will be displayed from Feb. 10 through May 20 in the Leon S. Peters Ellipse Gallery on the second floor of the library.

Much of Normart’s art is in watercolor, but he also works with stained glass and sculpture.

Normart received international recognition for his design and restoration of the Great Dome over the Tomb of Jesus Christ at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.

Aspects of this piece of work will be included in the library’s exhibition.

“So often, recognition for creative accomplishment is reserved for artists outside the local community, but we see that great talent exists right here in our region” said Delritta Hornbuckle, dean of library services, in a news release.
