      Brighton's brand new free comic magazine `The STRIP' is launching at
      the city's intimate NEST gallery on Wednesday 26th April 2006.

      An exhibition by the emerging and established comic artists of `The
      STRIP' will coincide with the release of the first edition and an
      opportunity to purchase artwork and comics.

      The exhibition will run throughout the Brighton festival until May 31st.







      Wednesday 26th April 2006

      An exhibition of work by artists from `The STRIP' is taking place at
      the NEST gallery in Kemptown.

      This exciting event is an opportunity for the general public to view
      and purchase art works and comics created by `The STRIP' contributors.

      Artwork will continue to be on display throughout The Brighton
      Festival, England's largest celebration of international art.

      `The STRIP' is a new publication with a difference, unlike other free
      magazines currently distributed in Brighton `The STRIP' will have a
      high profile among the Brighton comic book scene and will be something
      that readers will want to keep and collect. Circulation will be high
      and `The STRIP' will be widely distributed across Brighton and Hove.

      The editorial policy is to create comic strips which challenge the
      public perception of comic art whilst still being family orientated.
      `The STRIP' will be attractive to anybody with a sense of humour – a
      broad target audience.

      Edited by established writer and graphic designer Steve Carroll `The
      STRIP' is a publication enabling the diverse comic talent in the city
      to publish and be paid for their work.







      Additional Information / Notes for Journalists -

      `The STRIP':

      `The STRIP' is Brighton's first free magazine dedicated to showcasing
      comic book art. It is a bi-monthly publication becoming monthly in
      early 2007. The editorial policy is to create strips which push the
      envelope and showcase what comics can do today, whilst still appealing
      to a wide audience. All of the artists are paid for their work, and it
      is funded entirely through advertising.

      Contributing artists to `The STRIP' include both established creators

      Sara Abbott:

      Sara Abbott is an established Brighton artist and owner of NEST gallery.

      Sara is widely known for her contemporary dog and other animal
      paintings but has always been interested in the human form too.
      Earlier figurative work has a strong classical feel, with the play of
      hard, bright light on naked skin against dark backgrounds a constant
      theme, whilst in this very new work of mostly female figures the paint
      itself has been allowed free reign in both colour and control.

      The artist is also available for commissions.
