About this book

Reveals the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in charming detail as well as in its full natural beauty by the Thames. The art is about people too: their interaction with those settings, and the settings in turn as public places for simple relaxation and fun as well as the backdrop for enjoyment of botanical delights. Indeed, Kew today is more popular than ever: with visitors to the Royal Botanic Gardens and The National Archives, and as a residential community.

More than 50 artists particpated in the exhibition on which Artist's Kew is based. The charitable share of proceeds from the sale of their work is in support of Kew's plans to construct a purpose-built gallery to display the world's most important collection of botanical art and manuscripts.

The contemporary art shown in this book builds upon Kew's eclectic tradition: to inspire, to excite, to strengthen the foundations of our living heritage and to foster understanding of the breadth of activity in the Royal Botanic Gardens.
