Review: Rebel Women – Inspirational Girls

Romsey Town Roller Billies - a moment of relaxation

Romsey Town Roller Billies – Daisy Zoller

Slate the Disco, a Cambridge-focused artist and criticism site with a broad inclusion policy for the arts, has plenty to say on the Salon’s recent show. Rebel Women – Inspirational Girls celebrated International Women’s Day in the Salon, and was produced by Ruthie Collins, our Creative Director.

Led by teenagers who were guided and supported by the local Romsey Mill charity, Rebel Women is the result of a year’s work by many amazing women and those who supported them in their work, women and men together.

Read what Slate the Disco has to say:

Interviewing successful but also everyday women, women “who could be your neighbour”, Ruthie says, these girls have seen other perspectives of what being a woman means – expanding ideas of what female role models might be, celebrating women. The show itself fuses visual art, live art, video and text – all with a feminist twist. From photoshoots of women in Romsey Town (like the Romsey Town Rollerbillies), to the pop videos of live artists Bryony Kimmings’ feminist pop star Catherine Bennett, to videos of Hollie Mcnish’s poetry – there’s animation and film, too.

Slate the Disco interviewed Ruthie, to find her inspirations behind the show, and what she felt people could learn. Read the review and interview, on their site.

Exhibition: Spaced Out

Ship made of shaped nebulae, sailing through space

Spaced Out Ship

An exhibition of celestial paintings and illustrations by Lou Peajeux plus metal creations by Stephen Bedrikovs. Taking inspiration from outer-space, with all its beauty, magnitude and breathtaking swirls of colour, two local budding artists have worked in their own preferred mediums to create an astral display that is, almost literally, out of this world.

Lou is a resident artist at the Cambridge Art Salon, having graduated with a first class degree in Graphic Design and Illustration. Now working as a freelance illustrator, specialising in greetings cards, hand-painted ceramics and prints, this exhibition showcases a different and perhaps more painterly style. Whilst a love of vibrant colour and playful humour is still evident, the pieces are on a larger scale and have been worked to a high level of detail, contrasting smooth, cloudy gradients and sharper, glowing highlights.

There are five original canvases on show – four in acrylics, one in oils and six digital illustrations. The paintings depict a range of colourful nebulae, whilst the illustrations are either visual puns or comical space scenes featuring creatures on a journey through the stars. All original artwork is for sale, plus a range of signed and mounted prints.

Stephen Bedrikovs is a friend of Lou’s, having both known each other from school, throughout college and then university. Graduating with a degree in Design Crafts, Stephen is a metalsmith, jeweller and crafter, working predominantly in copper for this show, creating and shaping dishes with an iridescent, outer-space finish. All original pieces will also be for sale.
