Drawing Blanks – Opens Friday 2nd November 7pm (until 5th November)

Drawing Blanks

Drawing Blanks – illustrations inspired by the creative person’s dreaded fear of FAILURE. Because, as any real artist knows, producing a bad drawing/painting/sculpture/photograph/pasta collage etc is the worst thing that could ever possibly happen. Ever. Far worse than the supposed ‘real problems’ in the world that pose ‘real’ dangers to us, i.e. death and famine and earthquakes and grizzly bears and so on. This exhibition is the culmination of literally months of the artist’s terminal indecision, intense procrastination and wallowing in self-pity about the fact that no one ‘gets’ him, let alone understands his obvious tortured, fragile genius. Witness these images and feel his pain. Or just drink all the free booze and then leave. Either way.

Rob Wilson is an illustrator and resident at the Cambridge Art Salon studios.

As part of our Love Cambridge Art Campaign, Cambridge Art Salon launched the Cambridge Art Walks Map.  The map acknowledges and celebrates the growing contemporary visual arts community in Cambridge.  We want to highlight and cultivate links between the various arts spaces around Cambridge.  The Cambridge Art Walks Map not only locates art spaces in the city but also facilitates in encouraging people to visit these spaces and open up discussion by bring like-minded people together.  The art map ultimately re-engages people with their community and promotes art that is relevant to their everyday lives.  We have distributed the map freely to local art spaces, education centres, cafes, pubs, restaurants and shops.  Pick up or download your copy above to create your own route!

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.
