THE PIECE HALL
Official exhibition opening attended by Sophie Ryder
Saturday February 19th 2022
Sophie “works big” and her imposing sculptures which are inspired by animals and mystical creatures have been exhibited globally in Canada, the U.S.A. Germany and Sweden, alongside major exhibitions at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Often displayed in rural settings, the show at The Piece Hall represented a rare opportunity for her work to be seen in an urban setting, against the backdrop of the Grade I listed building’s beautiful stone façade.
The exhibition consisted of the following pieces: Dancing Hares (bronze); The Minotaur and The Hare on Bench (bronze); Torsos (Lady Hare and Minotaur) (galvanised steel wire); Crawling (bronze); Girl with Knees Up (bronze); Ladyhare and Boar on a barrel (bronze)
Additional works were on display in The Piece Hall Gallery.
