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 Finished

The much awaited launch of the painting will take place at the switch on of the Burley in Wharfedale Christmas lights event in the Queens Hall between 1.00pm And 4.00pm on 1st December 2018

School competition prize winners will be presented with their rewards at 3.00pm and prints plus related merchandising such as coasters will be on sale.

The switch on event promises to be spectacular as usual.

Somerville Arts have a great stand in front of the stage so please try and join us.

The painting looks amazing and it will be the first chance for the public to view it finished and framed before it takes up its formal position in the Burley Library.

The Gallery will be holding a three month exhibition on the work starting mid December 2018
