Exhibit of industrial artist's work features local connection

The unique iron and steel heritage of Chester County and the region set the background for a new exhibit of original paintings and sculptures at the Henry Gallery at Penn State Great Valley, 30 E. Swedesford Road, Malvern, Pa.

“Pennsylvania: Made of Steel” opens Jan. 27 and runs through March 14, featuring a selection of 30 paintings publicly exhibited for the first time from the National Iron and Steel Heritage Museum’s recent acquisition of original works by industrial artist Klaus Grutzka. The exhibit includes Grutzka paintings, which use Lukens Steel Co. and other regional industrial centers as subjects. The exhibit also features steel sculptures by three local artists: Karen Delaney, David Haines and Steve Blackburn of the Chester County Art Association. Admittance to the exhibit is free and open to the public.
