Kew Gardens - Chihuly: Reflections on Nature
Tuesday 08 October 2019

Kew Gardens is the setting for an exhibition of dazzling glass sculptures by Dale Chihuly, the world's most celebrated contemporary glass artist. The Gardens and glasshouses have been transformed into a one-of-a-kind contemporary outdoor gallery, where a wide selection of his art, including large-scale installations, sculptural works, and drawings are being displayed, several of the pieces  being exhibited for the first time in the UK. 32 artworks in 13 locations including glasshouses, vistas, and galleries demonstrate the evolution of the artist’s career over fifty years. 

Our visit will include: a train ride round the Gardens, the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art hosting 12 bodies of work, the amazing Marianne North Gallery, as well as the recently renovated Temperate House in which one of the new artworks is suspended from the ceiling, and a film detailing Chihuly's creative process.

Tickets £37  -  Kew Members £24

Leaving from Ascot Car Park 3 at 9 am
