Founded in 1975 and based in Exeter, our Society is a member of The Arts Society, formerly the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS). This is a world wide organisation of more than 90,000 members who belong to independent societies which are all affiliated to The Arts Society. In May 2017 our society, formerly DevonDFAS, was renamed The Arts Society Exeter.

Our aims are to increase our own understanding and enjoyment of the arts in the broadest sense, to foster friendships and to support arts education and conservation in our local community.
