Our Chairman is Betty Clement
It is with a great sense of privilege and responsibility that I take over as Chairman of ExeDFAS to steer the society through the next couple of years. We have a vibrant, successful society and I hope to build on that and continue the excellent work of my predecessor, Maureen De Viell.
There are many aspects of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts(NADFAS), namely art education, including the promotion of art opportunities for young people, social, church recording and conservation. The educative role of our society is well served by excellent lecture programmes and special interest days, all of which are very well attended. The guided tours, both in the UK and overseas, enhance the educative role and also provide opportunities for members to travel and socialise. It is on these tours, the day visits and at the various social functions that members are able to interact in smaller groups and really get to know one another.
Church recording and conservation work are the other arms of NADFAS and ExeDFAS has been successfully involved in the former. More recently we have set up a team to undertake conservation in this key area of NADFAS activity, enabling us to play our part in helping to preserve the cultural heritage of our society.
