Wells Art Contemporary is an open competition for UK and International visual art that has gained praise and respect in the UK and abroad. Established in 2012 by a group of artists and their friends in Wells, the beautiful cathedral city in the South-West of England, WAC is dedicated to promoting and supporting innovative and challenging visual artists at all stages of their career. 

WAC 2019 is thrilled to announce this year’s exhibition will be held in the stunning setting of Wells Cathedral and the selectors are Olivia Bax, Dominic Beattie, Sam Belinfante, Jessa Fairbrother, Alexis Harding and Katherine Jones.  This is a vanguard project for both the Cathedral and WAC which is a unique partnership.
