Resident's Feedback

At Paul Artspace you stand right and straight in the middle of the country and the city, the suburbs and the river. You are free to be here or there, empowered by people’s energy. Or you can stay still and quiet with your mind and the great house.

There are few places in the world where one can get as far out of and into one’s self at the same time. Paul Artspace served that purpose for me, and I can’t wait to go back.
— Chris Fahrenthold (St. Louis, Missouri)
Imagine a place where you can spend time with only yourself, where you find answers you always looked for, where nature helps you breathe, where inspiration is in each leaf, where everything is possible. Paul Artspace is a place where magic happens.
