Kew Gardens is celebrating ‘the season of fiery colour’ with a new festival showcasing Botanical Art as well as other immersive installations.

The festival is running from October 7 to 29 and includes artworks by Rebecca Louise Law, Lindsay Sekulowicz, Nigel Ross, Julia Clarke, Woody Fox Willow, and Claudia Wegner.

Gina Koutsika, head of visitor programmes, events and exhibitions said: “I am really delighted that Kew will be transformed into a treasure trove of outstanding art works this autumn.

“The Gardens are such an inspiring place during this captivating season, but when you add in 16 brand new works of art and our on-site gallery bursting with colour and talent, it creates an unmissable experience.”

One such talent, artist Rebecca Louise Law, is unveiling a giant hanging installation of 375,000 flowers inspired by the preserved funeral garlands of ancient Egyptian King Ramesses II, held in Kew’s own collection dating back to 1300BC.

Artist Rebecca Law said: “The natural world has been at the core of my artwork and I have always longed to create art that enables the viewer to find serenity within nature, transporting them into a space without the constraints of time and where there is still life in death.”
