A TALENTED artist from Royston will be exhibiting her work in the Cambridge Drawing Society's 125th anniversary exhibition next week.
Mary James, of Downlands, who originally trained as a fabric designer, is one of the society's newest members.
She will be exhibiting her drawings, paintings and illustrations which show her interest in the movement of form, capturing figures in motion in the exhibition which will be held at the Cambridge Guildhall from April 14-21.
Work by past members such as Gwen Raverat and Ronald Searle will be among the 200 pieces of original art from batik and sculpture to limited edition prints and contemporary and traditional paintings.
Society member and spokeswoman, Rachel Haynes, of Bassingbourn, said: "Throughout its long history the society has fostered the aims of its founding members, to encourage the arts of drawing, painting and sculpture in Cambridge and district."
The society which was founded in 1882 by lady Sandys, wife of the public orator and is one of the oldest of its kind in the UK.
