Convex, Concave is the next exhibition in our newly refurbished Chiswick Gallery. Joanna has curated an innovative show of sculpture, ceramics, glass, silver and furniture created by Master Craftsmen.

In the garden, which is featured in the May edition of House & Garden the abstract sculptures by James Oughtibridge will be on view, as well as the elemental Moon Jars from Adam Buick. Kew gardeners Tom Freeth, Michal Dvorak and Bradley Gangadeen have all been working hard to get the garden looking its absolute best.

On Monday 30 April (6-7pm) Tom will be joining Joanna in conversation to discuss colour and form in the garden.

The theme of the exhibition, Convex Concave is clearly illustrated in Simon Irvine's design by showing West Meon Pottery with their striking hand-made terracotta pots. Fergus Garrett, head gardener at Great Dixter has carfeully chosen some seasonal favourites which can be spotted in the flower beds.

For this exhibition Nest furniture offers chairs, a console table and an iconic red writing desk. Exciting new lustre work by Pippin Drysdale and still life compositions by Kaori Tatebayashi add variety to the traditional works of Richard Batterham and Clive Bowen. Suleyman Saba and Micki Schloessingk will be in company with the sculptural graphic energy of Halima Cassell, Wouter Dam and Matt Sherratt whose work clearly amplifies the theme.

Juxtaposed with the functional work are pieces by Jennifer Lee, John Ward and Paul Scott whose whimsical ceramic planted pots add humour to the collection.

New to our gallery are the rugs by Alan Oliver who will be giving a talk about making them on Tuesday 24 April at 6pm.

Glass work by Steffen Dam, silver pieces by Angela Cork and Adi Toch add a sense of luxury to our cornucopia of delights.

To highlight the events Rupert Newman has created a dramatic light show for the garden.

This is a show not to be missed!
