'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

     One of the points that were of main interest to us was the fact that we could plan the workspace and Martin & Peter really helped us through the process of planning the office. Since moving in we have been very impressed with their responsive and very proactive of working with us, if we have had any problems they have dealt with them straight away. They have monthly meetings where we meet up with all of the other tenants in the building and we talk through the issues we may have
