'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 

Admission: Free 

 
 
 

     We were looking around for buildings we could lease and this is was one of the central offices which has been refitted. We could choose the interior layout that we wanted and any optional extras and we decided that Bank Quay House was the building that exactly suited our needs. The money per square footage is very competitive; the owners Martin & Peter are very approachable and very, very good at listening
