Exhibition of Sculptures by Daphne Hardy Henrion 1976

3 mins United Kingdom

British sculptor Daphne Hardy Henrion known for producing figurative pieces portraying the tenderness of humanity holds a one-woman exhibition, for the first time in 20 years, at The Old Fire Engine House in Ely. Hardy’s last solo exhibition was at the Artists’ Association Gallery in 1956. Unpretentious and working with traditional materials, Hardy was proud that her work appealed to not only her peers but ordinary folk.

Amongst the exhibits is a piece inspired by Hardy’s move to Pope Mill Farm near Haverhill. The expressionistic sculpture shows Haverhill’s medieval church and 19th century factory within a ring of contemporary figures. The sculpture is a social observation on the town’s expansion during the early 1970s and the effect of the London Overspill Development on the inhabitants of Haverhill.

The East Anglian Film Archive, the first and largest Regional Film Archive in England, was established in 1976. Since 1984, EAFA has been owned and operated by the University of East Anglia, Norwich (UEA), to support research and work to preserve our moving image heritage. More than 250 hours are freely available online as examples of the wide range of film which attracts interest the world over.
