British artist, Sophie Ryder, is renowned for her large-scale open-air sculptures of animals and mystical hybrid creatures. Among her cast of characters, the Lady Hare features often, either alone or paired with her male counterpart, the Minotaur. Best known for her sculptures made of twisted wire, the artist was encouraged to work in bronze by her friend and mentor Elisabeth Frink and has also employed plaster, sheet metal and marble. 

Her solo exhibition filling all three spaces of the Djanogly Gallery offers a more intimate glimpse into Ryder’s studio practice including a selection of smaller-scale sculptures alongside drawings and prints of her favoured subjects. The installation Temple to the 200 Rabbits – guaranteed to be a sure-fire success with our youngest visitors – commands a gallery of its own. 

Families can pick up an Arts Investiagor pack from Gallery Desk to learn more about the exhibition.
