We want Somerset to be a place where people expect to engage with excellent visual art that is surprising and distinctive.
An artist-led organisation, we are Somerset's only countywide agency dedicated to developing visual arts, weaving together communities and supporting the artists who enrich our lives.
Visit the Projects page to see how we create an atmosphere of adventure and experimentation in Somerset, inspiring artists and encouraging audiences to experience art at first hand.
"Somerset is an inspirational county of great contrasts, drawing a whole range of artists to it. Somerset Art Works creates so many wonderful projects and their commitment and enthusiasm brings tremendous energy to artistic and local communities here." Kevin McCloud, Patron.
SAW offers an integrated membership service, professional development programme and curatorial services to support practicing artists and organisations in Somerset: providing bursaries, developing commissions, supporting collaborative working, providing networking and showcase opportunities, including our diverse annual Art Weeks event.
