1. Richard Stone: Gleam @ Kristin Hjellegjerde
Romantic heroism in sculpture and painting from an emerging artist. The sculpture is the strong point of the show and is classically inspired yet clearly contemporary. A great mixture of style and excellent to see a modern sculptor creating works in marble.

2. David Levene: Eyewitness @ The Gallery at Foyles, 107 Charing Cross Road
Guardian photographer David Levene picks his favourite shots from the newspaper’s Eyewitness series including the rather bizarre plane on top of a petrol station and old men playing chess whilst in a swimming pool.

3. Juliette Losq: Nemora @ Fine Art Society
Traditional landscape painting takes a turn around the wall and rolls across the floor in this creative take on an established subject matter.

Centre Court

4. National Open Art @ Somerset House
A solid collection of emerging talent in representational art, including the abandoned photographs of Gina Soden and Chrissy Eastwood, and the mind blowing aerial shots by Marcus Lyons.

5. Sigalit Landau: Knafeh @ Marlborough Contemporary
Innovative use of materials includes a noose encrusted with dead sea salt and footprints on sand across the walls, in this political art exhibition from a middle eastern artist.
