Welcome to PVAF
Enabling a creative environment that supports and nourishes artistic practice
Perthshire Visual Arts Forum is a Perthshire based charity run by artists. Our aim is to offer a forum for networking with each other and creating a climate of inspiration.
Perthshire is a large, mainly rural, county with many artists living and working within its boundary as well as in adjacent counties. The first PVAF event in 2005 was held as a way of finding these artists, of breaking their isolation and looking for common ground between people working across many different art forms and agendas.
We continue to organise events, workshops and members exhibitions in Perthshire in order to connect with and inspire each other.
Past PVAF events can be found via the Archive page of this site.
