Somerset Art Weeks is a countywide celebration of the variety and quality of contemporary visual art that can be found in Somerset.
Since its inception in 1994 Art Weeks has become an important event in Somerset's calendar delighting art lovers from near and far.
Due to increasing popularity and growth the decision was made in 2007 to turn the festival into an annual two week event with an alternating focus of Open Studios and Festival Year.
Somerset Art Weeks Festival 2013, took place 21st September to 6th October; a county-wide visual arts festival which showcased artist led-projects and exhibitions, providing a platform for artists to collaborate and show new work.
The festival celebrated the visual arts talent in Somerset and is different to the Open Studios event taking place in 2014. The Festival focused on group exhibitions, projects and events and was a celebration of the creative abilities of artists and their eagerness to expand their horizons and think "outside the box".

"Congratulations on all aspects of Somerset Art Weeks, the guide is a work of art in itself! We could write pages about our visits and the lovely people we met; how much we learned about techniques and processes and our lovely somerset towns, villages and countryside. Thank you for giving us so much." - Art Weeks Visitor
