London Sculpture Week

If you're not worn out and over-stretched running around London for this most exciting London Architecture Week and you feel able to fit in a bit of sculpture-snooping too, there is plenty to see in the third annual London Sculpture Week. Though aimed at collectors and buyers, the event is a good chance for anyone interested in sculpture and 3D art to see what is tucked away in the galleries and dealerships in town and also to meet the people who work in this field and learn more about this artform.

Until Friday 23 June, seven venues in central London are hosting displays of five different kinds of sculpture - all within walking distance in the Bond Street and St James area and all for free. The participating galleries and dealerships are all exhibiting their collections and highlighting items of particular interest.

Robert Bowman Gallery - 19th and 20th century sculpture: featuring a rare, small scale bronze casting of Rodin's The Kiss

Sam Fogg Ltd - Medieval art: featuring Byzantine carvings and gothic figures

Daniel Katz Ltd - European sculpture: featuring European terracotta figures

Rossi & Rossi Ltd - Himalayan art: featuring the early eighteenth century Mongolian Shadakshari Avalokiteshvara, a rare, jewelled statue of holy figure

The Sladmore Gallery - 20th century art: featuring works by Bugatti, Degas, Maillol, Pompon, Bernard

Trinity Fine Art - European sculpture: featuring Renaissance bronzes

Rupert Wace Ancient Art - antiquities: featuring a special display of ancient and contemporary works arranged to contrast and complement one another
