Steel making began in Illawarra
in the 1920s and has since become
one of the defining symbols of this
region and its people.
Based in the town of Port Kembla
the steel industry has epitomised
the working class values that
underpin the local community,
became a microcosm of changing
community attitudes and
multiculturalism and brought
growth and prosperity to this area.
Steel Town - Port Kembla is a timely exhibition that delves into the Gallery’s art collection to celebrate the indelible impact of the steel industry on this area through paintings, drawing, photographs and assemblage.
