The Acorn Gallery is hosting one of the country’s most sought after contemporary artists for a rare exhibition and appearance. The event is expected to attract art fans from all over the country to Pocklington.

JJ Adams will appear in the gallery on 23 March, where he will also unveil a brand new limited edition print. The exhibition is likely to draw a huge amount of attention from his cult-like following of fans and collectors.

Shortlisted for “Artist of the Year 2017” JJ Adams’ unique style is best described as a bold representation of fictional and pop icons placed in unlikely scenarios. Using mixed media such as spray paints, acrylics, digital composition and illustration, JJ is able to create wildly imaginative scenes using familiar characters.

Diane Wass, gallery owner says: “We are honoured that JJ Adams will be appearing at The Acorn Gallery. We are incredibly excited to be able to showcase a wide range of his limited edition prints and originals on the day which are sure to cause a buzz in the town!

“JJ is a hugely popular artist across the UK, so we couldn’t be happier that he’s chosen to spend some time with us and meet his fans in Yorkshire.”

The event will also include a special prize draw for anyone who purchases a JJ Adams piece on the day.

The JJ Adams Exhibition and Artist Appearance takes place on 23 March between 1-3pm. (Free) Follow the build-up to the event on Facebook – @TheAcornGallery
