Birds in Sculpture: Antique to Contemporary
The Sladmore was established in 1965 in the same Bruton Place mews building where we stand today. At Sladmore Contemporary we represent a select stable of contemporary artists such as Nic Fiddian Green, Mark Coreth and Sophie Dickens, with a full one person and mixed exhibition schedule. We show a wide range of bronzes, ceramics, carvings and multimedia creations from across the world and across the ages. Director, Gerry Farrell’s obsession is with sculpture and objects, the power of “making” and the joy found in a sense of the artist’s hand.
Gerry’s business partner Edward Horswell has run The Sladmore Gallery his whole working life, since he took over from his parents who created the gallery in 1965. In 2010 The Sladmore Gallery moved to our Jermyn Street premises where we continue to show fine and important sculpture by 20th Century Masters such as Rembrandt Bugatti, Edgar Degas and Auguste Rodin; artists in which Edward Horswell is an internationally acknowledged expert and authority.
The current exhibition at our Jermyn Street gallery includes of over 60 avian sculptures in bronze, terracotta, ceramic and plaster featuring works from the early 19th century French Animaliers, through the early 20th century impressionist and modern sculptors culminating in a group of works by our contemporary artists including Coreth, Dashwood, Bibby and Lazarri.
