Cambridge Drawing Society

Pitt Building, Cambridge - opposite Fitzbillies.

The Cambridge Drawing Society Spring exhibition starts on Saturday. It is housed in the Pitt Building is opposite Fitzbillies on Trumpington Road.

The Cambridge Drawing Society has two exhibitions a year but this is the big one. To be a member of this society one has to pass a panel of committee members who choose artists who present a high standard and whose work has a distinctive style, by which I mean they won't accept someone who puts in a print, a painting and a sketch as the mediums are so different.

I applied and was accepted by the society when I first came to Cambridge but with two small children and full time work I found it difficult to find the time to paint to a high standard and let my membership lapse.

About 6 years ago I re-applied and was delighted to be accepted as now I have the time to paint far more and feel my work has a very distinctive style and is a far better standard.

This year the chairman told us the number of entries had been very high so I was delighted that all four of my paintings were accepted.

The exhibition starts on Saturday 23 March and finishes on Saturday 30 March. It is open from 10am to 5.30pm every day except 30 March when it closes at 4pm.

If you have a little time to spare please pop along and have a look. There are a range of media including paintings in watercolour, acrylic and oil; prints of all kinds, 3 dimensional work and plenty of greeting cards made by the artists.
