Manipulating the Front End from the Kernel (moving Graphics)

I am building a simulator in Mathematica and for once, I would rather be
able to output the graphics in a different window than my usual
notebook. I created a "Control Panel" notebook and would like to send
graphics I update in that "Control Panel".

Has anyone tried to get the "Show" command to display in a different
notebook than the evaluation notebook?

I tried to use NotebookWrite but could not figure out how to get a Cell
with the proper data in it.

I am pretty sure I can do it by first creating the graphics in the
evaluation notebook then reading that Cell and then writing it in my
Control Panel, but is there a way to get the graphic cell directly in
the right place?
