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 celebration of the variety and quality of contemporary art in Somerset. The annual event alternates between Open Studios and Festival Year.
Open Studios 2018 will take place from 15- 30 September.
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.
