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.

Burley Library Sets up Painting Exhibition

A fantastic exhibition of the Burley Painting has been put together at the library in the village. The Library is awaiting refurbishment after which the original painting commission by the Burley Community Trust, will hopefully reside. It is the perfect place to go and see the variations of prints and canvasses plus other merchandise available to purchase through Somerville Arts either at the Gallery or on line.

Please note the Library do not have the facilities to make sales direct.
