Kerry Darlington 2018 Event

Kerry's annual appearance for 2018 was the biggest and most spectacular Kerry Darlington event Wyecliffe has ever held... Join us as we relive the glittering occasion with these great photos and videos from the night...

This years theme was 'Midwinter Magic' to coincide with the launch of Godric's Lane, Strangeauld Place and Journey to the Ice Palace among others... Using black pine trees, a dark colour scheme and soft atmosperic lighting we transformed the Wyecliffe Galleries into a mis-en-scene both magical and elegant. Possibly the most successful event decoration yet - and we've had some eye opening designs over the years!

The centrepiece of our annual event is the appearance of Kerry herself: as charming, authentic and beautiful as ever. Candidly chatting to her collectors and making everybody welcome; this is that rare breed of exceptional talent who remains warm, graceful and down-to-earth. A genuine friend to us here at Wyecliffe - her appearances are the undisputed high point of the gallery year.

Of course, the other highlight of the show was the appearance of so many of collectors and friends. Almost 200 guests made their way across the UK - battling a rainstorm of biblical proportions! It was thrilling to have so many wonderful people with us and the atmosphere was electric...

Luckilly the extreme weather did nothing at all to dampen the spirit of the show itself (in many ways the dramatic atmosphere was a great counterpoint to the fantastical wintry landscapes on display). The only casualty of the tempest was Anthony, Wyecliffe's brand manager, in attempting to keep the rain from pooling on our courtyard's protective canopy - he got a full deluge of rainwater cascading onto his head for his troubles... I think he found that refreshing...

To commemorate the sparkling occasion, an unprecedented series of new Originals and Boutique Editions were launched on the night. Although most were sold at the event, a limited amount are still available. Don't miss out on your piece of Kerry Darlington history.

We have also compiled the definitive collection of Kerry Darlington videos. For exclusive insights into Kerry's creative process, candid interviews and discovery of her inspirations: Wyecliffe's specially produced series is a unique documentation of Kerry Darlington at work....


We look forward to seeing you at next year's Darlington event. There will be many incredible new releases before then, so be sure to keep an eye on our articles and news for updates on Kerry's latest artistic adventures.

A thoughtful and quietly spoken artist, Scott Bauer’s polite manner is the perfect reflection of a series of accomplished original acrylic works with pristine painted stripes as their signature structure. A genre named by the artist as linear formalism, the term conjures thoughts of complex algebraic formulas, a mindset far away from the freedom of creative imagination. Using fragments of memory along with his perception of the world, the artist distills light and colour into stunningly rendered stripes. Waved, faded and pure, the outcome are pieces both calmly meditative and excitingly vivid. Wyecliffe Galleries are privileged to share an insight in to the mind of this emerging artist.
