The Wells Art Contemporary (WAC) exhibition is back this summer, providing an exciting opportunity to enjoy world class art in the magnificent setting of Wells Cathedral. The hugely popular annual event not only attracts thousands of entries from all corners of the globe, it has become a highlight in the region’s cultural calendar, Nearly 150 works by international professional artists in a wide range of media, from painting and textiles to printmaking, video and photography, will be displayed along three sides of the Cathedral’s cloisters during August. Additional site-specific installations drawing inspiration from the architecture and historic resonances of the building will make an exciting trail throughout the Cathedral itself and its gardens. “While not asking for religious art, the brief was for ideas which convey a sense of spiritual intensity in response to these unique medieval spaces,” explains WAC Exhibition Director, Bill Lloyd.
