Somerville Gallery and the Coronavirus

Due to the current Coronavirus situation we have taken the sensible precaution to suspend formal opening hours of the Somerville Gallery in Otley. Whilst the foot count of visitors is usually not very heavy in a concentrated fashion, the nature of the screen panelling is such that close contact with other people is inevitable.

Should anyone wish to visit the Gallery we are quite happy to accommodate by appointment only for the time being.

By telephoning Ian or Jayne directly at the studio in Burley in Wharfedale : 01943 864349 arrangements can be made to suit most circumstances.

Ian will work solely from the studio for the time being.

We will keep the website updated with news as it develops and please don’t forget that most products can be distributed on line.

1812 Completion

‘1812 ‘ by Ian Middleton

One of Ian’s most highly original works is now set for release on 12th May 2018 when we open the Gallery.

A large number of advanced orders for the limited edition prints have already been received and these will be available on 12th May. A decision has been taken to reduce the number available for issue in the interests of collectability. Only 495 prints on fine art paper or canvas will be produced. In addition, 95 embellished or re work pieces such as the Marie Curie commission have been agreed.

A number of Ian’s prints such as ‘Yorkshire’ and ‘The Boatyard’ have now become very collectable due to demand and we feel the ‘1812’ will join their ranks very quickly indeed given the restricted numbers. This we feel is good news for all supporters of Ian’s work.

The way the print and embellished issues are structured, customers will have a more bespoke approach towards matching their needs and pockets when purchasing the finished article. Should anyone wish to enquire about ordering a print before launch date, please use the enquiry form on this website.
