Welcome to the AFAS Website

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.
