Founded in 1964 for all those interested in art in Faringdon and The Vale, Faringdon Art Society (FAS) is run on a 'not for profit' basis and currently has over one hundred members.
The society welcomes anyone with an interest in art, whether two or three dimensional and whether they be a leisure artist, a professional, or just someone that enjoys seeing how artists create their work.
