The newly opened Hignell Gallery in Mayfair celebrates Brown’s London Art Weekend with an exciting programme of events from 1 July – 3 July 2016


During Brown’s London Art Weekend (1 - 3 July), internationally acclaimed artist Sophie Ryder will be exhibiting in London for the first time in over a decade at the newly-opened Hignell Gallery, specialising in contemporary sculpture, in Shepherd’s Market, Mayfair.

Hignell Gallery’s exhibition runs concurrently with Ryder’s critically acclaimed exhibition Relationships at Salisbury Cathedral (until 4 July), which has attracted a record numbers of visitors to the city. It will feature a range of maquettes of the works at Salisbury Cathedral including ‘Lady Hare and Minotaur Torsos’ and ‘Introspective’, together with new works such as ‘Lady Hare with Child’ and ‘Girl Leaning on Horse’.

Ryder’s work will also form the inspiration for a series of events hosted by gallery owner Abby Hignell over the course of the weekend which will include a Gallery HOP!, where the gallery will host a lindy hop masquerade party based on the artist’s use of mythological creatures, a tour of exhibitions in Mayfair by leading female artists led by Abby Hignell and ‘Ryder in Residence’, where Sophie Ryder will be signing copies of her latest hardback book ‘A Life in Sculpture’.

Gallery HOP!
Friday 1 July 6:00 - 8:00pm
As 62 galleries across Mayfair open late, Hignell Gallery presents a lindyhop masquerade party inspired by Sophie Ryder’s use of mythological creatures in her work. Hignell Gallery will provide Hare and Minotaur masks to try on at the gallery but guests are encouraged to create their own to wear. Which animal rules your head or heart?
