Somerset Art Weeks

Somerset Art Weeks

Somerset Art Weeks are an annual countywide celebration of the variety and quality of contemporary visual art that can be found in Somerset.  Since its inception in 1994, it has become an important event in Somerset’s calendar delighting art lovers from near and far.  The Art Weeks are an annual two week event with an alternating focus i.e. Open Studios (…2014, 2016, 2018 …) and Exhibitions and Events (…2015, 2017, 2019…). Both events continue to support the development of the Somerset artistic community as a fundamental part of the cultural life of the county by showcasing a broad-range of visual arts and craft.

Open Studios 2018 take place from 15- 30 September.

Threads is delighted to be hosting Open Studios in Minehead with Gary Mills ( Exmoor Inspired ).

Gary will hold a private view of exhibited works on Saturday 15 September, followed over the course of the next 2 weeks by a series of workshops and classes demonstrating processes and concepts, aimed towards the beginner to the intermediate and those who are inquisitive to learn a new skill. The days when workshops are not in progress, Gary will be onsite working and demonstrating his own practice and working methods.
