Open Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-4pm
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 Ladyhare features often, either alone or paired with her male counterpart, the Minotaur. Best known for her works in twisted wire, the artist also sculpts in bronze, plaster, 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 and maquettes, 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 Investigator pack from the Gallery Desk to learn more about the exhibition.
