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.

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