Teesside Steel Industry Exhibition Opening

Posted on: November 17th, 2020 by admin

Join us for the opening of the next exhibition at The Heritage Gallery:

 

Teesside Steel Industry by Hazel Dixon

Thursday 31st May 2018, 5pm until 7pm.

 

Hazel Dixon experiments with rust as a method of addressing problems in the local community, focusing her work on the steel industry in Redcar, 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 means 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 Teesside. 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 hope you can make it to the opening, it’s a great opportunity to meet Hazel and ask any questions you may have about the work displayed over drinks and nibbles.

Parking and entry are free.


“The Boro, Town & Country” Exhibition Opening

Posted on: November 17th, 2020 by admin

We would like to invite you to attend the following exhibition opening at The Heritage Gallery:
“The Boro, Town & Country”
by Philip Meadows
Thursday 12th April 2018, 5pm – 7pm.
Philip Meadows says:
“The Teesside in which I grew up, has for many of us, changed beyond recognition. The skyline is no longer filled by industry and smoke and it has to be said – the pollution that was created.
Travelling on the trolleybus through South Bank into Middlesbrough I was familiar with the Coke Ovens belching steam, the Clay Lane Blast Furnaces emitting orange dust that coated washing hanging on lines in the back alleys and the Tees bustling with ship yards and ports. I believed it would all last forever. Serving the industries were the characters on their bikes, such as my father, off to work in his old army greatcoat, old service gas mask bag containing their bait slung over their shoulder. When Saturday came the passion was football and the pilgrimage to Ayresome Park to stand in the Holgate and watch the Boro.
Teesside was a stark contrast to the summer months I spent on my mother’s family farm, closely observing industry of a different kind. I realise now that I had an artistic talent for observation.
If my farm paintings featuring my dogs Jess and Belle or the Ayresome Park and industry portayals are melancholic and represent a bygone era, then I am in good company. John Constables much loved paintings represent the rural idyll of his youth, not the steam and smoke of the industrial revolution and the age in which he was painting.”
We do hope you can make it to the opening and look forward to seeing you there. It’s a great opportunity to meet Philip and ask any questions you may have about the work displayed.
Parking & entry are FREE and refreshments will be provided during the opening.

We do hope you can make it to the opening and will look forward to seeing you there.
