Centre d’art de Châteauvert

In the heart of Provence Verte, in a green haven on the banks of the Argens river, the Centre of Contemporary Art in Chateauvert was opened in 2014 and has been welcoming artists in residence since 2018.  It is financed by « La Communauté d’Agglomération Provence Verte ».

At the crossroads in Provence art and nature work together. The Contemporary Art Centre in Châteauvert invites us to walk and dream amongst the sculptures in its garden along the river Argens. Contemporary creation in the Art Centre vibrates to the rhythms of the river, sometimes peaceful, sometimes capricious, but with the spirit of discovery and  sharing. Projects abound with artists’ residences who create their work here in keeping with the environment of the park. Art also flourishes within the Centre’s walls with temporary exhibitions brought to life by guided visits, conferences and meetings.Support for artists-authors and visitor communication are promoted with equal energy in a space adapted to the projects it houses - a space for art and nature nestling in the intimate « Vallon Sourn ».


Two or three residences a year for research and creation are organised at the Art Centre. Each residence lasts one month and is followed by a show of work.
