THE COSTA del Sol Decorative and Fine Arts Society (DFAS) was established in 1988, the first society of its kind in Spain.
It is one of more than 350 societies worldwide that are members of the National Association of Fine & Decorative Arts Society (NADFAS in the UK).
Costa del Sol DFAS’s objective is to further the enjoyment, knowledge and awareness of the arts interna-tionally and to stimulate interest in the cultural heritage of Spain.
The society is friendly, active and thriving, with members representing 15 nationalities and who are passion-ate about fine and decorative arts.
Art lectures run from October through to May and cover a wide range of artistic and cultural interests.
The next lecture will be held on Monday May 8 in Salon Varietes Theatre, Fuengirola.
From 4.30pm, lecturer Tony Faber will present ‘Faber and Faber- 90 years of excellence in cover design’.
This lecture traces the history of Faber and Faber, one of London’s most important publishing houses, through its illustrations, covers and designs.
Early years brought innovations like the Ariel Poems – single poems, beautifully illustrated, sold in their own envelopes.
It will feature artists from Rex Whistler and Barnett Freedman to Peter Blake and Damien Hirst and design concepts from the typographic excellence pioneered by Berthold Wolpe; his Albertus font is still used on City of London road signs, to the various grids used by the agency Pentagram.
Visitors are welcome at a cost of €10.
