“Cold Steel a Dead Industry” exhibition opening by Hazel Dixon
Join us for the next exhibition opening at The Heritage Gallery, “Cold Steel a Dead Industry” by Hazel Dixon,
Thursday 2nd March 2017, 4-6pm, with nibbles and refreshments.
It’s a great opportunity to meet the artist and ask any questions you may have about the work displayed.
Hazel Dixon currently experiments with rust as a method of addressing problems in the local community, focusing her work on the steel industry, which has now closed down and has rendered many people unemployed and poverty stricken. She aims to explore the issue by creating art that represents what the industry meant to people and also what it is today. Hazel uses steel plates that are covered in rusted images of the industrial plants and collapsed habitations of Redcar and Middlesbrough. She says “I have chosen to create dark, grungy pieces of art, to represent the struggle of the working class people living in the UK and the feelings people have about the demise of the steel industry within the local community”.
We do hope you can make it to the opening and look forward to seeing you there.
Exhibition runs until Friday 31st March 2017.
