Steel Away

October 2017 - January 2018
An exhibition of sculpture and photography inspired by the steel and steel workers of Redcar. Featuring the work of Graham Anderton and Mo Coade.

Graham Anderton works from a forge tucked away on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, an area thats had a legacy of high quality steel work for over 150 years. Its here that Graham realised that he could make his passion for steel become an art form. From dragons to peacocks to stiletto shoes to the iconic racing bikes which graced the start of last years Tour de France and this years Tour de Yorkshire, he creates work appreciated by clients both in the UK and overseas.

Mo Coade interviewed and photographed people whose working lives were shaped by the steel industry at Redcar. Focussing mainly on the workers personal experiences the images try to express the interviewees current work or preoccupations.
