SAW’s vision is for Somerset to be a place where people expect to engage with excellent visual art that is surprising and distinctive.
Somerset Art Weeks are 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 Open Studios in 2016 and Art Weeks Festival in 2017.
Since 2002 SAW has worked with a wide range of arts and non-art partners, providing opportunities for artists to extend their professional practice.
SAW aims to embed learning throughout all our activity and develops learning programmes to enable professional artists to work with schools and communities.
