Ceramic outdoor art installation bu Nici Riggiero at the Physic Garden in Chelsea ... Justine Lois Thorpe exhibits at Brighton Art Fair ... and the concluding Postcard From Shetland.


Visitors to the Physic Garden in Chelsea will have seen a unique outdoor art installation created for London’s Chelsea Physic Garden by ceramic artist Nici Ruggiero.

The installation has been designed in two parts. The first part is comprised of a trail of fifteen inscribed apothecary jars displayed on metal stakes amongst the plants. These lead to a second larger display; a wall installation of a further twenty-one illustrative jars. The trail and installation bring together the early chemists and the source of many of their medicines – plants.  Read full article.

The exhibition runs to 31 October 2015 at Chelsea Physic Garden, 66 Royal Hospital Rd, London SW3 4HS
