Contains Art

Contains Art is charitable arts organisation based in the small harbour town of Watchet in West Somerset.

Until 2019 it operated a gallery and artist studios built from three refurbished shipping containers by a group of dedicated volunteers in the early summer of 2013.

We have now moved our containers off-site during the development of East Quay, a new cultural enterprise that will become our new home in Watchet, expanding and increasing the capacity of our gallery. This means that we no longer have regular opening hours, or a gallery and studios for you to visit during this time, but we still have an exciting range of things happening in the area.

The East Quay development is now well underway and we are sharing the process and progress of the build in regular updates and creative activities. For frequent postings on Contains Art, and to see what workshops, events and commissions we have in the area, please to refer to our Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter accounts, or join our mailing list in the Contact section of this website.
