'Cold Steel a Dead Industry' Art Exhibition Unveiled in Middlesbrough
Added: 17/03/2017

Hazel Dixon's powerful solo exhibition, 'Cold Steel a Dead Industry', is on public display at The Heritage Gallery at Cargo Fleet Offices in Middlesbrough until Friday 31st March. 

The dramatic new exhibition addresses problems in the local community, focusing specifically on the steel industry, which has now closed-down and has rendered many people unemployed and poverty stricken. 

The artist explores the issue by creating art using rust, which represents what the industry meant to people and what it is today.  She uses steel plates that are covered in rusted images of the industrial plants and collapsed habitations of Redcar and Cleveland. 

Artist Hazel Dixon, said: “I have chosen to create dark, grundy pieces of art to represent the struggle of working-class people living in the UK and the feelings people have about the demise of the steel industry within the local community,” said Hazel Dixon. 

Venue: The Heritage Gallery at Cargo Fleet Offices, 

Date: Until Friday 31st March 2017

Time: 8.30am-3.00pm, Monday to Friday

     Python were pretty instrumental helping us make that transition getting into the building. We met with Martin & Peter and spoke to them in details as to what we would expect; they were very welcoming and accommodating in that regard. They were flexible about the Lease and they made it quite clear that they were there to help and support our business
