About PAS Rydalmere

PAS Rydalmere features six studio spaces located in a converted warehouse in an industrial estate at 22 Mary Parade, Rydalmere. The PAS Rydalmere Studio Program prioritises the development of mid-career and established  artists through the provision of highly-subsidised two-year studio tenancies, and a curated program of studio visits and professional development opportunities.

The PAS Rydalmere studios are larger on average than those at PAS Granville, with higher ceilings, improved ventilation and offer more flexibility including larger-scale construction. The 2023–25 PAS Rydalmere Studio Artists are Serwah Attafuah, Billy Bain, HOSSEI, Owen Leong, Jodie Whalen and Min Wong.
