Cavalier Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of Bjorn Skaarup's sculpture at Cavalier Gallery in New York, in celebration of the artist's public exhibition at Pershing Square. Featured in the exhibition are many of his iconic Hippo Ballerina sculptures in different poses, as well a selection of other fantastical and charming animal sculptures. Skaarup's works are informed by his art historical background and are imbued with a sense of playfulness and wonder. Sculptures such as Majestic Lion, a lion wearing a crown mounted atop a rocking horse and Emperor Penguin, penguins dressed in robes reminiscent of Ancient Roman emperors, exemplify the artists creativity and sense of humor.

We invite you to join us in celebrating this exhibition at an open-house reception with the artist on Saturday, May 7th from 12:00pm to 5:00pm at 3 W. 57th Street, 4th Floor.
