Alternating between Open Studios and Festival years, Somerset Art Weeks is now firmly established as one of the biggest showcases celebrating the visual arts in the South West. With over 350 artists in 120 venues for 16 days of this autumn’s Festival, many venues have embraced the theme ‘Prospect’ in their shows and events.

Somerset Art Works continues to support the arts in Somerset and facilitate exciting, challenging and inspiring artwork with a curated programme of commissions and partner projects all of which place Art in the heart of the community.

Festival years continue to delight audiences by enabling artists to participate in themed exhibitions and group shows alongside specially commissioned SAW projects. Visitors can expect to be inspired and surprised by experiencing art in a variety of unusual and special locations with the opportunity to take part in workshops, activities and talks. The vast majority of the festival is free to attend.
