Local artist Karl Ullger is one of the artists who will feature in the new series of Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year television programme. He is featured in the first episode that airs on Tuesday 11 October. This is the second series of the show, which is produced by London and Glasgow-based independent production company Storyvault Films.

This year the winning artist will receive a £10,000 commission to interpret Petworth House in West Sussex for the National Trust’s national art collection.

Hundreds of entries were received for the 2016 competition and Mr Ullger was one of 48 artists who took part in six heats filmed over the summer at three UK National Trust locations: Scotney Castle, Kent; Wray Castle, Lake Windermere and Stowe in Buckinghamshire.

Mr Ullger told the Chronicle yesterday that taking part in the show was a fantastic experience in all aspects.

“It was,” he said, “a step further in putting Gibraltarian art on the map.”
