Rising Sophie Ryder

“RISING” The Mystical World of Sophie Ryder
January 12 – April 30, 2017

Artist Talk & Book Signing in the Gardens
Saturday, January 14th at 11am
RSVP 832-5328

Come wander the pathways of the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens and enter the mystical world of Sophie Ryder. Her hybrid creatures dance and prance and play among the rare palms and cycads. Hares and Minotaurs, strange amorphous figures fashioned in wire and bronze, some with human attributes are characters beyond human form. Their gestures, points of contact and attitudes impel us to regard first and foremost, their feelings.

Gallery Talks will be held on Wednesdays at 11am and Sundays at 2pm

Dramatically presented on the main lawn of the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens from January to June, 2017, this exhibition is reflective of Ann Norton’s personal mission to preserve green space for native and migrating birds.  The exhibition spotlights the loss of bird species due to environmental changes and includes five bronze sculptures of extinct North American birds. Renowned artist Todd McGrain will personally curate his art, including framed drawings of the sculptures, photos and an educational narrative about each bird with supporting photos.
