Specialist botanical gallery.
Feb 2020
A very nice centre for exhibitions with a core gallery and a shop. For me it pales beside the extraordinary Marianne North Gallery next door, but there is room for both as additions to Kew Gardens itself.

This gallery and the Marianne North Gallery are definitely worth seeing while at Kew Gardens. Entrance is included with the garden ticket.

Collected works of stupendous botanical artists
Nov 2019
The collection of modern botanical art at the Shirley Sherwood collection at Kew stunned and humbled me. What magnificent work! Words are pale and inadequate. This is the kind of art that inspires, that makes you realize the extraordinary capabilities of tainted human beings. See it, for goodness sake, see it.

Chihuly...sigh
Oct 2019
Loved the Chihuly glassworks and the artist’s paintings of plants. I would definitely visit again. I don’t know what is on offer at other times.

Spectacular collection of Chihuly's glass sculptures (temporary exhibition)
Apr 2019
Temporary exhibit of Chihuly's glass sculptures at the Gallery is phenomenal! All of them are so unique and different one from another; the variety of colors, intricate shapes and forms are beyond any reasonable imagination.

I also loved the Gallery shop, where you can actually acquire a small Chihuly's glass sculpture, if you are ready to spare $$$$... but his works are worth every penny of their price tag.

Beautiful Glass Artwork
Oct 2019 • Couples
Upon entering the Kew Gardens, one sees a glass artwork that looks extremely alien. According to the artist, his aim was to produce a work of art that would be accepted regardless of where it was, be it a forest or somewhere else. As you walk around, you start to accept the works displayed to the extent that you feel them to be organic and one with their surroundings.

WOW! Specracular display!
Sep 2019
Aside from the amazing botanical paintings, the gallery houses the unbelievable display of contemporary glass by Dale Chihuly at present. If you like blown glass, then this exhibition is for you. There are some stunning pieces of glass housed in the gallery, the colours and shapes are truly amazing!

There are other larger glass installations interspersed with real botanical displays throughout Kew Gardens until the end of October I believe. The planting is spectacular especially with the addition of the Chihuly glass installations at present. I was overwhelmed by the massive blue glass flowers suspended from the roof of the temperate house. Goodness knows how they got it up there without damaging it!

Admission the gallery is included in the Kew Garden ticket price.

Not to be missed!
