The UK’s commercial galleries are open again – and here are the shows not to miss in London this month in Apollo Magazine by Gabrielle Schwarz

With the reopening of commercial galleries in the UK on 12 April, Apollo’s editors pick out the exhibitions in London that they’re most looking forward to visiting in coming weeks.

I’ve enjoyed spending more time in my local area this year and am looking forward to another visit to the Sunday Painter on the South Lambeth Road, a short walk from my home. The gallery reopens with a group show that includes pieces by the post-war ceramicist Gillian Lowndes alongside contemporary work. Also on view will be a solo display of paintings by Veronika Pausova: unnerving abstractions punctuated by disembodied hands, feet and other objects (both 12 April–8 May). Venturing (slightly) further afield, I’ll be heading to Peckham for Bosse & Baum’s intriguing pairing of works by Grace Pailthorpe – a Surrealist painter, psychoanalyst and surgeon – and the young artist Mary Stephenson (15 April–22 May).
