Friends of Clare Hall Art Society

Friends of Clare Hall Art Society (FCHAS) is a new initiative led by Helaine Blumenfeld OBE in support of art projects at Clare Hall. The College holds a significant art collection of mostly contemporary British artworks. FCHAS aims to strengthen and promote Clare Hall’s network of artists, art historians and Fellows from other disciplines from the UK and abroad with interest in the arts.  It is also an opportunity to meet other like-minded individuals with interest in art.
