Welcome to the Gainsborough and District Decorative and Fine Arts Society
Our society was founded in 1978 and has a membership of just over 200. The Society exists to promote interest in and knowledge of all matters both current and historic relating to decorative and fine arts including textiles, music, paintings, architecture, books and sculpture and to support education and heritage retention in these areas.
The Society is a member society of The Arts Society (formerly the National Association of Decorative and Fine Art Societies, or NADFAS).
Meetings take place from February to December, but not July or August, on the afternoon of the first Thursday of each month, at the Trinity Arts Centre, Trinity Street, Gainsborough, DN21 2AL
We offer a comprehensive programme of lectures on a given by approved speakers from The Arts Society, who are of a very high standard. In addition, there are Day Visits, Short Tours at Home and Abroad, and Study Days. The Arts Society organises study days, visits and heritage training on both Area and National basis.
Active volunteer groups include Church Recorders and Heritage Volunteers – for more details please see the appropriate page on this web site. We also sponsor schools within our area through our Young Art projects
More information including joining us and where we meet is available under the About Us tab at the top of the page.
Visitors are always welcome, but we would love you to join after a couple of visits - thank you.
