Botanical Theatre: the art of Pandora Sellars (1936-2017)

At the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art

“Explore the colourful and exquisitely detailed plant portraits by one of the world’s most important botanical painters.

Pandora’s complex compositions have been described as ‘botanical theatre’ and highlight her outstanding ability to convey texture, light and colour with incredible life-like accuracy.

The exhibition represents some of the key aspects of Pandora’s output with examples from Kew’s collections as well as loans from RHS Lindley Library, The Postal Museum and various private collections.”
