Located in the heart of the old town Vallauris, on the French Riviera,
A.I.R. Vallauris (Artists in Residence), a non-profit Association,
welcomes artists from around the world to meet with local artists and to
research and create new works in a unique setting.

A.I.R. Vallauris accommodates several artists at a given time for a given
time period in its residence and studios. Using different mediums, artists
(ceramists, sculptors, painters, photographers, video and multimedia) work
from an equipped studio, live in individual furnished spaces and are
afforded access to a gallery where their works are displayed and
celebrated at the end of their residency period. Media involvement
encourages the interest of an invited and engaged audience. Over the
thirteen year period, from April 2002, over 200 artists of 30 different
nationalities have participated in the A.I.R. Vallauris program. We invite
you to look at Facebook photo gallery (A.I.R. Vallauris) that we regularly
update and that covers most of our activities (www.air-vallauris.org).
