Critically acclaimed artist Caroline Shotton will be making a guest appearance at a Leamington gallery tomorrow to unveil a newly curated exhibition of her work.

Castle Galleries in Regent Street will be welcoming the contemporary painter between 1pm and 4pm, when she will present her hotly anticipated Autumn collection, alongside a range of signed limited editions and rare pieces from previous collections.

A spokesman said: “As one of the leading contemporary artists in the UK, Caroline Shotton’s bovine art has not only redefined the parameters of modern day portraiture, but has shed a new light on our appreciation of art and the role it plays in our day-to-day lives.”

Shotton, who remains of Castle Galleries’ top selling artists a decade after embarking on her career as a professional artist, said: “I’ve always created work that stems from personal experience, yet allows others to add their own narrative. My children are probably my biggest source of inspiration – I wanted to paint something happy for my child’s bedroom wall and a character that would make him smile and keep him company. This led to a colourful composition featuring a quirky cow and the rest is history!”

Simon Daw, gallery manager for Castle Galleries in Leamington, said: “Caroline’s work has proven to be extremely popular with our customers because of its warmth and humour, and we are delighted to be able to exhibit her new summer collection.”
