A Golden Jubilee Exhibition
Celebrating 50 years of The Arts Society (formerly NADFAS)
To mark this occasion, members of The Arts Society Basingstoke have lent examples of their work to honour this achievement.
The Arts Society is a leading arts education charity with a global network of 385 local societies, which bring people together through a shared curiosity for the arts. It was founded 50 years ago as the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts.
Local societies arrange meetings where expert lecturers share their specialised knowledge about the arts; organise visits and tours; support heritage conservation and encourage young people to engage with the arts.
"THE BELIEF THAT THE ARTS HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO ENRICH PEOPLES’ LIVES IS AT THE HEART OF EVERYTHING WE DO.”
The Arts Society Basingstoke which was founded 25 years ago, has organised this exhibition to celebrate the work and aims of The Arts Society. Paintings, sculpture and textiles will be represented together with examples of other media.
