Folkestone Art Society is now in its 87th year with over 200 members, which must make it one of the oldest and largest art societies in the South East and possibly in the UK. It has held well over 300 exhibitions, regularly holding at least two a year in Folkestone. A workshop programme is run in conjunction with the annual spring exhibition, normally held in a gallery in Folkestone's lively harbour area.
FAS is a part of the very active Triennial Fringe art scene in Folkestone which hosts the Triennial, an arts festival where internationally known artists are invited to make installations in and around the town. Fringe artists and artistic groups and clubs contribute enormously to the Triennial.
FAS always welcomes new members. Please contact membership secretary Yvonne Hutchcraft, [email protected] or visit our web site.
