Hignell Gallery was established in 2015 by twentieth century and contemporary sculpture specialist Abby Hignell in Shepherd Market, Mayfair. The gallery's inaugural exhibition showcased a selection of the twentieth century greats of Modern British sculpture with works by Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Lynn Chadwick.
The gallery program gives particular focus to monumental and site specific sculpture and the gallery frequently presents open air exhibitions including Sophie Ryder at The Piece Hall, 'Tree of Life': Helaine Blumenfeld OBE at Ely Cathedral and 'Renaturing Nature' featuring the work of Joana Vasconcelos and Peter Randall-Page RA in St James's Square.
Projects in 2023 include Laura Ellen Bacon at Normanby Hall and to mark Sophie Ryder's 60th year the gallery has supported a series of public exhibitions at the Djanogly Gallery, the Lightbox Museum and Gallery, Chelsea Barracks, and RHS Wisley.
Hignell Gallery is a member of The Society of London Art Dealers
