Somerset Art Works exists to promote the visual arts and create opportunities for visual artists in Somerset by advocacy, promotion and development
Our aim is to increase public awareness and involvement with visual artists and makers working in Somerset, to enhance the artistic, cultural and economic benefits for artists and communities; to play a significant part in developing the visuals arts educational and community role in Somerset.
Arts education is vital for a healthy ecology in the future, and so we bring artists together with schools, colleges and the community to work together creatively. Engaging with people of every age and ability within our communities helps to enrich our appreciation of the arts through participation and learning new skills.
Any donation made to Somerset Art Works goes straight into our learning and engagement programmes, artist development programmes, and creating events that bring communities together.
