Salon de ShadyJane
Call for Female Artists
Salon de ShadyJane is a strategy for the cultural visibility of the female artist, through the creation of an artist’s network and performance platform solely for women. The concept for the salon echoes the literary salons of Paris’ Left Bank in the early part of the 20th Century and first wave feminist practice - when women had no place to show their work, they used their own homes to access each other’s art. We have harnessed this model as a way to create space for the work of female artists today, in an environment supported by other female artists.
If you are a female artist, we want to hear from you.
The next Salon event is the 26th – 28th June at The Shop, Basingstoke and we invite you to join us to share work, an idea, a few thoughts, for discussions or just to observe.

Salon de ShadyJane is run by Total Theatre award-winning, all-female company ShadyJane and supported by The Point, Eastleigh. We are committed to supporting and working with other female artists from around the country: to make the female artist’s place in the theatrical landscape stronger.

Fish Hook are an up and coming Reading/Basingstoke based country rock ‘n’ roll band and they are looking for help from artists / graphic designers to get some artwork to use on CDs / T-shirts and all types of other merchandise.
They have opened this competition to the general public but would very much like to offer the opportunity to enter directly to students in Basingstoke as a means of not only winning the prizes mentioned below but as a great way of getting examples for their portfolio that they can say have been used in the real world rather than just examples of college work.
You can check the band out one facebook www.facebook.com/fishhookuk
Fish Hook are looking for new artwork to use for all merchandise coming up.
Fish Hook are looking for artwork for CD’s, T-shirts, Stickers etc etc. Being that we are a country rock ‘n’ roll band we need something to express that. We would like the following aspects to be worked into the artwork:
- Old style microphone
- A fish hook (obviously)
- A nautical theme to fit with our name (similar to the Sailor Jerrys brand)
There is an element of punk in their music so things like skulls are not excluded from the designs as long as they fit with the over all theme.
Here are some links to artwork they like to give you an idea of what we are looking for:
If you are interested contact Sarah Edge or Gary Roberts.
