Cambridge Drawing Society

Guildhall Exhibition 2015

The Society’s spring exhibition at the Cambridge Guildhall was very successful and attracted almost 3,000 visitors. There was much praise for the wide variety of exciting paintings, prints and sculptures on display. Visitors clearly enjoyed choosing their favourite artwork and very many votes were cast over the course of the week.

The favourite picture chosen by visitors was Cherries with a Silver Tankard, an oil painting by David John Leathers and in second place, The Philosopher, also in oil by Katherine Firth. Four artists shared third place: The Quince in the Woodshed by Andy Dakin, Rose Crescent at Night by Rachel Haynes, By the Fishmarket, Grand Canal by Jenny Sanders and Tree of Cambridge by Maureen Mace.

Many visitors expressed their disappointment that, despite a long unbroken tradition since 1947, rising hire costs mean that this has been the Society’s final Guildhall Exhibition. However, most definitely, it will NOT be the Society’s last spring exhibition. In April 2016 the Society will hold its exhibition in the attractive venue of the Pitt Building in Trumpington Street.
