Somerset Contemporary Artist Network (SCAN) is an artist-led collective of both emerging and professional artists, providing support and networking opportunities to all members. Somerset Contemporary Artists’ Network was formed in 2009 as Somerset Emerging Artists’ Network. When many of its original members had become established in their practice, it was decided to change the name.
The group now has a strong online networking and social media presence providing a great resource for news about local art events, festivals, member-lead workshops and exhibition opportunities.
The group has members of the Royal West of England Academy as well as established close links with Taunton Deane Council, Kings College, Somerset Art Works, Ilminster Arts Centre, CicCic Taunton and Somerset College.
This year SCAN is holding it’s annual group art exhibition between 3 – 29 July during Taunton Live arts festival, at the Brewhouse Theatre & Arts Centre in Taunton. The exhibition will contain a wide and exciting variety of superb artwork from Somerset’s finest emerging and professional artists.
The Private viewing is on the evening of 4th July 5 – 7pm
