About

Make Hauser & Wirth Somerset is a destination for contemporary making and the crafted object, showcasing work from the best emerging and established makers both nationally and internationally. All works are for sale.

Since its launch in 2018, the gallery has presented work by over fifty artist-makers, providing valuable insights into the working processes and rich narratives of their practices. Make occupies two rooms of a Georgian townhouse at 13 High Street, Bruton with Jacqueline Moore as Director. There is an emphasis on pieces commissioned specifically for Make, some of which are created in response to Somerset and the South West, employing locally sourced materials. To coincide with the diverse and collaborative exhibition program, the gallery hosts a number of participatory experiences including talks, workshops, residencies and community events. All works exhibited are for sale. Contact Jacqueline Moore for more information.
