    Vivien Phelan, Nicolette Carter, Elly Wright

    Beautiful, quirky and unusual ceramic figures, indoor/outdoor animals, childhood and canine wall hangings, as well as evocative paintings.   

     

    Caversham based artist Nicolette Carter will shortly be featured on the latest BBC 1 Series of 'Home Is Where The Art is' presented by Nick Knowles.  

     Nicolette is a painter who has been making, exhibiting and selling her art for over thirty years since graduating from West Surrey College of Art and Design.

    Nicolette will be appearing on the program on Thursday 23rd   July at 15.45 You can also catch up on BBC I player.

     During the filming of the episode, Nicolette travelled for hundreds of miles across the UK and was filmed at the T.V. Studio, in her own painting studio and at the stunning home of the potential art buyers. She competed against two other artists to win a commission and during the finale of the show you will see which of the 3 artists won the final challenge to complete a unique and personalised artwork.

    It was a once in a lifetime experience for Nicolette and it was a great pleasure to meet so many wonderful, talented and fascinating people including the other artists, the home owners and the team behind this entertaining, highly creative and heart-warming programme. Nicolette says: “I love the ethos of the programme…. which makes art accessible, not just to the buyer, but also to the viewers, by giving an insight into how art is made and how artists and art lovers can collaborate to produce beautiful, diverse and, unique works of art.

     

    You can find out more on her website: www.nicolettecarter.com and Instagram profile: @nicolettecarterart

    Notes:

    Nicolette specialises in landscapes, gardens and narrative paintings and is influenced by Medieval and Eastern art forms. She has worked on many commissions from miniature paintings to playground murals, but has never been asked to make anything quite like this for such an unusual location!

    At the Ghostlight

    There is no Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year so no trip north of the border for us.  However, our venue, The Space UK is holding its own online version of the Fringe with 80+ shows going live from 10am on Saturday August 8th

    Our "show" is a short piece, written specially for the event by J.J. Leppink.  "At the Ghostlight" is set in a closed theatre.  Noone is about except the theatre ghosts who have seen it all before.  Join us to eavesdrop on the conversation between music hall diva Nelly Power and Shakespeare's clown Will Kemp as they discuss life, their worlds and a nice cup of tea!

    The show can be seen from  10am on Saturday 8th August  online.thespaceuk.com

    It is free to view but there is a donation button that we hope will help us to recoup some of this year's Fringe cancellation costs.
