History of The Art Society
In 1965 The Chiltern Antiques Group was founded by Patricia Fay and a pioneering group of young women eager to be educated about the Arts. Just a few years later, in 1968, eleven such Societies came together to form the National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS).
In the 1970s NADFAS became a registered charity and rapidly expanded with new societies in different regions of the UK. For her inspiration and vision Patricia Fay received an OBE in 1975. The Patricia Fay Memorial Fund was established in 1980 following her death a year earlier, aged at just 46.
In 1984 the first overseas Society in Germany opened, followed by Societies across mainland Europe,New Zealand and Australia.
In 1994 a central London premises was purchased in the heart of Bloomsbury, which is still home to head office today.
On 17 May 2017, they had a re-brand to keep up with the times, The Arts Society replaced NADFAS as their operating name.
