Paul Edwards CCAThree CDS members have been invited to  exhibit a collection of original hand pulled prints at the Cambridge Contemporary Arts gallery from the 11th March through to 2nd April 2017. The works on display will be a mix of existing and new works exhibited for the first time.

Tracey CCAAll three printmakers primarily focus on abstract images, with very different motivations and perspectives resulting in unique work, examples of which are shown here. Collectively, this will make for a very exciting and ecclectic exhibition.

Susan, Tracey and Paul look forward to meeting visitors and fellow artists at the exhibition launch Meet & Greet on Saturday 11th March.
