OAS says farewell to outgoing Chairman Peter Farley

At the recent 124th Oxford Art Society AGM Peter Farley stepped down as our Chairman.  His excellent care, inclusive style, friendly manner and careful direction will be much missed by members of the Oxford Art Society and wider arts community.  He was elected an Honorary Member for his outstanding services to the society and presented with a gift voucher from Broad Canvas in thanks for all his hard work.

We now have a new Chairman to welcome in to the society – it was agreed at the same meeting this appointment should be put in the very able hands of Lucy Stopford.  As members are very aware, prior to taking on her new role, Lucy had been working hard behind the scenes as our Membership Secretary.  We wish her great success in her role of Chairman of the Society.
