I am delighted to announce that The Shirley Sherwood Collection now has a Facebook Page - which you can find here https://www.facebook.com/shirleysherwoodcollection/
We can certainly expect to see announcements about the current and upcoming exhibitions at The Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanic Art at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
Given Dr Sherwood has always been a big supporter of the artists as well as the art I think we can also expect to hear news about the artists who have work in the collection.
Plus I have my fingers crossed and hope we might also get to see any new botanical artwork that is being added to the collection. This is a collection which now amounts to very nearly 1,000 artworks collected in the last 25+ years.
The "Learn More" button at the tope of the page takes you straight to the Gallery's page on the Kew website.
Kew Gardens has two exhibitions this Autumn which include portrayals of nuts and seeds.
Sculpt at Kew
An exhibition of sculpture opened in Kew Gardens last Monday. You can see 70 sculptures between now and 15 October.
Last Sunday, when the sculptures were in place with final tweaking still to do, I took a number of photos of the sculptures of seed pods and nuts in the garden for the exhibition that was opening the following day - and below is a slideshow of the sculptures I saw - which were mainly bronze resin works by Anne Curry MRBS
Abundance: seeds, pods and autumn fruits
There are also other exhibitions during the Artful Autumn season.
Two other exhibitions are also at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery. These are:
It has not been possible to hang more than a small proportion of ‘my’ British artists here as I now have 330 works by 86 painters and so I have had to be fiercely selective.
