Wells Art Contemporary

Wells Art Contemporary (WAC) was established in 2012 by a group of artists in Wells, the beautiful cathedral city in the South-West of England. Wells Cathedral, dedicated to St Andrew the Apostle, is the seat of the Bishop of Bath and Wells. Its magnificent West Front dates from the 13th Century and in August each year the Cathedral becomes the venue for the annual WAC exhibition.

WAC is an open competition and exhibition for contemporary visual arts which has established a strong presence in the UK art world and which is drawing artists from places as diverse as Australia, Azerbaijan, India, Italy, Korea, Japan and the United States.

The exhibition runs from the 5th August- 2nd September 2023
