Summer Garden Party 2016

Annual Summer Garden Party

Curtis House 2016

 70 CDS Members and Friends, together with family and friends enjoyed the summer garden party hosted by Godfrey and Pauline Curtis in their beautiful house in Comberton on Sunday 19th June.  Although the weather leading up to the event had been very changeable, on the day it was pleasently warm and enabled everyone to enjoy the garden at it's best. 

The Society is not only indebted to Godfrey and Pauline for their wonderful hospitality but to all the members who helped make this occasion a success.  A huge thanks go to our President, Janice Anderson and member Tracey Ashman who teamed up and provided a delicious buffet. Thanks to Anthony Hopkinson, who again acted as shopkeeper for a ‘bring and buy’ sale of unwanted art materials. To Richard Baker and John Tordoff for making themselves available in the morning to help with the erection of the marquee and finally, to Harry Baker for his professional photographs capturing the day.

As always, the party proved a great opportunity for members and Friends of the Society to get to know each other, discuss their shared passion and exchange ideas.

100 Artists now featured

100 CDS members now have their biographies on the CDS website!

Eve Corder happens to be the 100th Cambridge Drawing Society member to publish their biography in the members' section of the CDS website. I'm afraid there is no prize to go along with achievement.

Thank you to all these members who have taken advantage of this facility, and contributed to raising the profile of their own work and showcasing the abilities of the CDS membership.

Remember that the CDS Twitter account is active, and many items of interest to CDS members are tweeted or re-tweeted there. If you do use twitter (even if it's just a little bit), do consider following the @CambDrawingSoc. Of course, you can always see what's been tweeted on the home page of the website.
