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 Painting on Display at Queens Hall

Ian’s Drawing for the legacy painting of the the village will be on display at Burley Show in the Queens Hall between 2.00pm and 5.00pm during Bank holiday Monday 27th August 2018.

We are also pleased to announce the actual 4ft wide canvas will be available for viewing, hopefully with the first daubs of actual oil paint!

Ian will be in attendance to meet people and discuss the painting.
