About 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 to create 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.

Any questions about PVAF or wish to join? go ‘here’.
