Cambridge Drawing Society

Autumn Exhibition at the Leys School, Cambridge 24 – 31 October 2015

The Society Autumn exhibition was held once again at the Leys School during the half term week.   The Society is immensely grateful for use of the excellent gallery provided by the School’s original art studio and for the all the assistance received from members of staff.

Hemingford Manor (Green Knowe) smallerThe Society exhibited 277 works, including paintings, drawing and prints, together with ceramic and stone sculptures and greetings cards, from 97 members.  The overall appearance was of a high quality exhibition, which deservedly received much praise.

The favourite work chosen by visitors was Richard Baker’s watercolour and ink painting of Hemingford Manor, Green Knowe.

The Society is also very grateful to our sponsors, Tindalls, Ken Bromley Art Supplies and Winsor & Newton, who generously provided prizes for a raffle. The winners were as follows:

1st Prize: Gill Harwood
2nd Prize: Ms Wren
Four 3rd Prizes: Chris Wilson, Judith Grant, Heather Rix and Pam Latham

The next Society Exhibition will be held at the Pitt Building, Trumpington Street, Cambridge from 9-16 April 2016.
