Place des Artistes de Farrellton / Farrellton Artists’ Space is a
non-profit cooperative artist-run space dedicated to the production
and development of Arts and Culture in the Outaouais and beyond.
It supports this vision by:
1. offering affordable studio space and resources to professional
artists, primarily in the visual arts.
2. offering ongoing residencies, exhibitions, symposiums,
presentations and workshops. Programming may include local, regional,
national and international artists of all artistic disciplines.
By opening our studios and venue through special events and
programming to the public we aim to cultivate an audience for
contemporary art and to facilitate the artistic and cultural
development of its members and the community at large.
PAF provides low-cost workspace and resources for professional artists in a re-purposed school in the Gatineau Hills.
The organization was created in 2013 to respond to regional demand for studio space, and to raise the profile of the strong cultural engagement that this region is known for.
The artists at PAF consist of a balance of emerging, established and award winning professional artists practicing a diversity of mediums with a focus on visual arts. Public support has allowed PAF to develop a full scale rehabilitation of the gym area as an artistic laboratory for experimentation, professional development, exhibition, public interface and artist residencies, making it ready for 2017 programming.
