Our Mission

Inspired by our founders, our vision, mission and values are at the heart of all that we do, and inform our business and action plans.

G F and Mary Watts founded this unique place, brimming with art and ideas. Today we continue to share their story and welcome you to engage, be inspired and create.

Our Vision

To be an international centre for engaging with mid-19th to early 20th-century art, social history, craft, design and architecture, and the exploration of its relevance in our lives.

To provide an inspiring and enriching visitor experience that celebrates artistic excellence by partnering with practising artists and makers to explore the art and ideas of G F and Mary Watts, and how their values shape our vision for equality of opportunity through the arts.

To use inspiring and innovative ways to transform lives through art, inside and beyond Watts Gallery – Artists' Village.

To play a leading role in the international Artist's Studio Museums Network and to advocate with audiences worldwide for Watts Gallery – Artists' Village and the other unique places and spaces within the Network that inspire artists.
