Cambridge Drawing Society

The Cambridge Drawing Society's 2020 Spring Art Exhibition planned to take place at the Pitt Building, Cambridge, from Saturday 21st - Saturday 28th March 2020 has been cancelled.


CORONAVIRUS EXHIBITION UPDATE (Tuesday 10th March) - Due to ongoing coronavirus concerns, and the challenges this creates to guarantee we will have sufficient resources available to set up and run the exhibition, the Society has, with great regret, decided to cancel this year's Spring exhibition.

The next exhibition by the Society will be the Autumn exhibition at the Leys School in Cambridge. This will run from Sunday 25th October to Saturday 31st October.

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.
