Rory McEwen at Kew

Sticking with botony, tommorow the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art in the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew opens Rory McEwen The Colours of Reality (CLICK). The exhibition covers his output from the 1950s to the 1980s. His eye for detail was incredible, as you can see from his Indian Onion above (1971) and the YouTube video below. The drawback is the price. You have to buy garden tickets at £14.50 for adults and £12.50 for silver surfers. Kids 16 and under are free. There is also a book: £20 paperback.

That's the word: exquisite.
