The Armed Forces Art Society was the premier art society that drew its membership from those with a present or past connection with the United Kingdom's Armed Services. The Society mounted highly prestigious exhibitions that demonstrated the compatibility of the profession of arms and the pursuit of the arts.
Website updated 26 July 2018
It is with great regret that the Armed Forces Art Society has to close after 93 years due to a lack of Chair and Committee. The world of art societies has moved on and changed immeasurably. However, in order for the membership to keep in touch and perhaps to get together within their own region, please remember we have a Facebook page for the membership.
Membership applications have closed.
MENIER GALLERY EXHIBITION 2018
The 84th (and last) Annual AFAS Exhibition was at the Menier Gallery in 2018.
Due to the AFAS closing, there will no longer be any further exhibitions. Some former members of the AFAS may organise their own exhibitions around the UK, details may appear as long as the website is available.
See our previous exhibitions with details on award winners and selected works.
The Society has been fortunate to have been sponsored by SimplyBiz. SimplyBiz is dedicated to providing comprehensive, market leading compliance and business support to directly authorised advisers.
