Art Galleries & Artists

In the late 1900s, Wells' quiet rural atmosphere and inexpensive housing attracted a number of artists and artisans.
Today, the small community is home to a good number of unique studios and galleries. Browse creations such as jewelry, photography cards, paintings, raku ceramics, gold nuggets, clay animal tracks and more.
But the artistry doesn't end at the galleries. The town's heritage buildings have also been preserved with artistic flair. Some locals have preserved the facades of their homes and galleries by painting them vivid colours, which creates an impression of gems set against a backdrop of green forest.
The annual ArtsWells Festival of All Things Art happens in August.
