CELEBRATING AND PROMOTING
We have exciting news of new opportunities and services that will help you all as artists promote yourselves using film, photography and writing. Many talented artists are less confident at promoting themselves and their work, so this could be the perfect option for taking this side of your creative life forward..
What is really unqiue about what's on offer, is that the promotional services are delivered by people who really understand art and artists - Noah Carter, with a background in the art sector and the son of artist Simon Carter and designer, Ruth Carter, and Jane Nash, freelance writer, who alongside a background in writing for galleries and museums, has worked for Seawhite Studio, with our students and artists since 1998.
Noah Carter - Filmaker and Photographer
Simon Carter's Studio
Noah Carter graduated with a Masters degree in Architecture and the following year set up his own studio which specialises in working with artists, designers, jewellers and musicians to produce short documentary films and portrait photographs.
His films offer a unique insight into the subject’s working practice, exploring the often unseen process behind their work and promoting the activity of small, independent designers and workshops.
Noah's background in Architecture and experience of the arts sector allows him to interact meaningfully with his clients, understand their intent and the complexities of their design process, and convey this in his work.
Stephen Henderson's Studio
His ability to work as a one-man crew means he can keep costs down whilst still producing films of the highest quality. He uses very portable, lightweight and compact equipment which allows him to work without disturbing the day to day routine of the studio or workspace and produce intimate and honest representations of the subject’s working environment. When taking both film and photographs Noah strives to produce natural, incidental images.
Noah’s films have been shown alongside exhibitions at major universities and art galleries and his photographs are often used in exhibition catalogues and for the digital publicity of events.

Jane Nash - Tailored Artist Statement Service
Jane Nash, is a freelance writer who works at the Seawhite Studio, contributing to the writing and planning of artist’s books, publicity material for numerous exhibitions and an increasing portfolio of artist statements. Jane is now offering an exciting new service to help artists write statements about their work and practice, by offering workshops and working one to one with artists in their studios.
With an MA in English Literature at the University of Sussex in 2000, a passion for the written word and interest in the arts for writing and education Jane spent several years writing learning resources and teacher guides for various institutions, most notably Royal Pavilion & museums in Brighton & Hove and Pallant House Gallery in Chichester. Alongside this work she began to write about artists and their work.
As Jane explains, "Artist statements act as an introduction to your work and practice as a whole....You will need an artist statement for most opportunities: applications for exhibitions, grants, open competitions, press releases, personal websites, exhibition text (catalogue essays and text panels)
... it also helps you focus and order your thoughts about your practice, provides a valuable opportunity to reflect and review your development and enriches your work, encouraging you to articulate what makes you tick as an artist, and highlight what makes your work distinctive".
Working with you, Jane can help you identify the key aspects of your work in a clear and objective way, whilst retaining an authentic voice, so that your statement is an accurate reflection of you and your work.
So what’s involved?
The process begins with an interview. Jane will meet and chat about your work, your interests and working practices as an artist (ideally whilst actually looking at your work). The interview usually lasts an hour. After the interview, she will then create a transcript of our conversation, send you a draft and make amendments based on your feedback. Once finished it will be made available for you to use as you wish. The fee for delivering this service is £150.
Jane will also be running two half day workshops to offer further help and advice to artists. The workshops can be booked via the Seawhite Studio website. Click on the workshop title below to go directly to the registration page:
