The Mercus Barn is an artist-run, not-for-profit exhibition space devoted to the arts of painting, drawing and photography. It is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the heart of the French Pyrénées.
The village of Mercus is close to the historic town of Foix and has excellent road and rail links with major cities, including Barcelona. The département of the Ariège is served by international airports in Toulouse and Carcassonne, each a 70-minute car drive from the village. There are numerous sites of Magdalenian cave art in the vicinity, all with public access. These include the celebrated Grotte de Niaux.
The management takes no commission on sales and there are no charges to artists. We will provide publicity and Private View reception for all exhibitions. Transportation and insurance of works are the responsibility of exhibitors.
