Newsletter Oct 20 Pg1NEW NEWSLETTER

CDS launches "The Sketch", a new newsletter to highlight what's going on in the Society. You can see the entire newsletter here.


The coronavirus pandemic continues to throw a string of varied challenges for all of our daily lives. The start of 2021 is proving to be particularly difficult, and it has again impacted on the Society's plans for this year. The annual Spring exhibition has again been cancelled. We are actively exploring the development of an on-line exhibition capability, which will become a permanent feature that will compliment our normal Spring and Autumn exhibitions.

We will continue to run on-line evening events for our Members and Friends of the Society.

2019 Leys Autumn Exhibition


The Society’s annual Autumn exhibition was held at the Leys School in Cambridge. 310 new original artworks were exhibited by 109 artists from the Cambridge region. The artworks on display included paintings in a variety of media, fine art prints and sculptures. There was also a large display of greeting cards and many unframed original paintings and prints available for visitors to browse. Just over 900 people visited the exhibition.

The most popular work in the overall exhibition, chosen by visitors, was this mixed media work, Tin And Stone by Susan Eddy.

The raffle prize, a £50.00 voucher towards an artwork, valid for the next 3 exhibitions, was won by Karen Mahoney. Congratulations Karen, we hope you will enjoy spending your prize at a future exhibition.


Exhibition Screen Hire Available

The Cambridge Drawing Society has an inventory of 50 exhibition screens, which are available for hire throughout the year. The fabric covered screens measure 6 feet x 4 feet (180cm x 120cm) and can be erected in portrait or landscape orientation. The screens are self supporting with poles and bases.

As a guide, two people can erect 10 screens in one hour.

The hiring cost is £10/screen irrespective of the duration of the hire. The hirer will be responsible for the cost of the CDS preferred carrier to deliver and collect the screens. The carrier cost is dependent upon the delivery distance. Typically in the Cambridge area this is around £100 to cover delivery and collection.

To hire the screens or ask any questions, please email Colin Hayes:
