PAINTERS' DECORATIVE AND FINE ART SOCIETY

Formed in 1989 the Painters' Fine Art Society (PFAS) comprised Liverymen and Freemen who were either artists or had an active interest in art. In 2015, the PFAS joined with the Decorative Crafts Group to form the Painters' Decorative & Fine Art Society (PDFAS).

For a selection of some of the members’ work, please see the artists’ gallery pages.
