Hidden Beauty - Plant Life Under the Microscope

By Steve Lowry

Tue, 30 April - Sun, 23 June
9.00AM - 5.00PM
Oriel Gallery


We are used to admiring the flowers and foliage in our gardens without realizing the hidden wonders of the structure of plants when viewed under the microscope. In this exhibition Steve Lowry reveals the detailed structure of plant buds, leaves and leaf hairs, wood, stems and roots when viewed using a light microscope. The range of textures is made even more spectacular by using polarized light to create a rainbow of stunning colours.
