Shirley Sherwood GalleryHome to thousands of rare plant species and housing an impressive archive, Kew Gardens is the obvious place to stage the world's first gallery dedicated to botanical art. The stunning Shirley Sherwood Gallery, designed by award-winning architects Walters and Cohen, is climate controlled with managed lighting to ensure that fragile art works aren't damaged while on public display. The extensive collection of over 200,000 items ranges from eighteenth and nineteenth century illustrations to more recent works including those donated by Dr Sherwood - after whom the gallery is named - amassed since 1990. This stunning gallery is a timely addition to Kew's plant life displays - with one quarter of the world's species of flowering plants threatened by extinction in the next fifty years.
