Helen Blumenfeld OBE – Exhibition of Sculptures – Tree of Life
August 13, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00am, repeating until August 31, 2018
An enlightening and unmissable exhibition at Ely Cathedral showing major new works by nationally acclaimed artist and contemporary sculptor Helaine Blumenfeld.
This is to be one of her largest exhibitions in Europe and has been curated by Jacquiline Creswell. ‘Tree of Life’ takes its name from one of the most important and enduring themes occupying Blumenfeld’s work. It captures all the powerful symbolism of this imagery and describes a compelling narrative of renewal, energy, optimism and hope – all themes developed by Helaine over a lifetime and now fully realised in this exceptional exhibition.
Helaine Blumenfeld has been creating bronze and marble sculptures in her Cambridge and Italy-based studios for almost fifty years. Formerly hailed as the next Henry Moore, she had a seminal joint exhibition with him at the Alex Rosenberg Gallery, New York, in 1985. In 2008, the Royal British Society of Sculptors held a major retrospective of Blumenfeld work and, in 2011, she was awarded an honorary OBE to mark her achievements in sculpture.
Entry included with Cathedral admission fee.
Exhibition runs until Friday 31st August
*Please note Sunday hours are 12 – 4pm*
