Voted by the Fine Art Trade Guild, the UK’s Best Selling Published Artist Kerry Darlington is visiting Limited 2 Art, as only one of five personal appearances in the UK this year.

As well as winning the above accolade twice, Kerry Darlington’s work was recently featured in Channel 4’s ‘Posh Pawn’ series as a Lincolnshire couple reluctantly pawn their pride and joy, a six-foot original which they paid £25,000 and is now valued at £100,000.

Kerry will meet with fans and collectors of her work in the biggest exhibition hosted by Limited 2 Art for an artist. The entire first floor of the gallery will be devoted to Kerry’s work showcasing originals, unique editions and sculptures. The Bawtry gallery is the only gallery in the North of England Kerry will be visiting in 2014.

Limited 2 Art will also be launching an exclusive original and the unique editions of the original for a limited period before it is made available to other galleries in the UK. Fans of her work are advised to ‘like’ the Limited 2 Art homepage on Facebook for the up-to-the-minute information.

Ruth Worsman, owner of Limited 2 Art, says “Having Kerry Darlington to visit my gallery in Bawtry is an unbelievable opportunity as Kerry does not do many personal appearances, this is the equivalent of say, pop star Ed Sheeran visiting the town! She is the hottest artist around, hence why I am turning over two thirds of my gallery to her work.”

On her original pieces, Kerry works with texture, acrylics and resin. She works in layers to build up depth and create more light. She uses resin as a medium rather than a varnish on the original paintings.

With her ‘Unique Editions’, whilst in essence they are prints, each one is some way unique. She creates small 3D additions which are hand-worked individually and adhered to the print. The background is also hand embellished, and all the work has resin hand-applied, making each print look like an original painting.

She will visit the gallery on Saturday 12 July from noon to 3pm.

Limited 2 Art is situated at 12 The Courtyard, Bawtry, Doncaster, DN10 6JG.
