The Gallery of Contemporary Sculpture and Plastic Arts (Russian: Галерея Современной Скульптуры и Пластики), or Sculpture Gallery, is an art gallery in Saint Petersburg, Russia which was opened in 2009. Its founder and director is Sophia Kasim.

The Sculpture Gallery is the first modern exhibition center in St. Petersburg created for the exhibition and popularization of this kind of art. It deals manly with exhibitions, including traveling exhibitions, exchanges and landscapes. The Sculpture Gallery is included in the All-Russia Museum Registry.

The focus of the gallery is sculpture, both Russian and foreign, from the late 20th century to the present. Three themed exhibitions are held each year and they show the variety of styles and schools in the plastic arts such as sculpture, object, installation and miniatures. The materials vary from traditional (metal, wood, stone) to unusual (cellulose, foam plastic, cardboard).

One of the features of the gallery is landscape sculpture. According to the founder, exhibitions of landscape sculpture in the gallery give an opportunity to realize challenging projects, to show a broad spectrum of people works which are very difficult to exhibit, and to draw the attention of professionals and connoisseurs of this kind of art.
