CDS Autumn Exhibition

23rd - 29th October 2022

The Leys School, Fen Causeway, Cambridge, CB2 7AD

The Society’s Autumn exhibition will be making a welcome return to our usual venue at the Leys School in Cambridge.  The exhibition will feature over 300 original artworks by selected local artists.  Paintings, drawings, prints & sculpture encompassing a wide variety of styles, media and genres will be included.

The Society holds two exhibitions each year

Selected Exhibition

Each March/April the main art exhibition takes place. In recent years it has been held at The Pitt Building in Trumpington Street, Cambridge. The works exhibited are chosen by a Selection Committee of nine members of not less than 5 years standing and chaired by the Society President.

Members' Exhibition

 A Member's only exhibition is held in the Autumn. The Autumn exhibition is not subject to selection.

Exhibition Screens for Hire

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 £12/screen for 10 days. 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 £110 to cover delivery and collection. (The recommended minimum number of screens for hire is 4.)

To hire the screens or ask any questions, please email Tim Duckworth: screens@cambridgedrawingsociety.org
