Since 2002 SAW has worked with a wide range of arts and non-art partners, providing opportunities for artists to extend their professional practice.

Art Weeks

Somerset Art Weeks is an annual countywide celebration of the variety and quality of contemporary visual art that can be found in Somerset. The annual event has an alternating focus with Art Weeks Festival in 2015 and Open Studios in 2016.


SAW aims to embed learning throughout all our activity and develops learning programmes to enable professional artists to work with schools and communities.


SAW’s vision is for Somerset to be a place where people expect to engage with excellent visual art that is surprising and distinctive.
