Welcome to PVAF
PVAF (Perthshire Visual Arts Forum) is run by a voluntary group of artists living and working in and around Perth. Most of the committee members are based in rural Perthshire or just over the border into Fife and Angus.
Bringing together artists from Perthshire and other parts of Scotland they also give local artists a worldwide platform with over 20 international artists having attended their events to date coming from as far away as Japan and New Zealand and also from the Baltic countries, Scandinavia, Northern Europe and Spain.
PVAF is a constituted group of artists who organise events in Perthshire in order to network local artists with each other and internationally. Our events provide inspiration, information and opportunities for career oriented artists.
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. Net- working with each other and with artists from other places and creating a climate of inspiration were major goals. Each subsequent event has built on the very positive feedback and evaluations received and each year new initiatives have been added, past events can be found via the Archive page of this site.
PVAF welcomes new members and it's free.
You will get email newsletters about our events and newsflashes in advance. Invites to our events, openings, workshops, masterclasses and conferences. Friendly access to many talented and experienced artists in all media.
