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 Schedule

The oil paint is now being applied to the four foot canvas displaying the colour balances which are now beginning to emerge.

Ian has made quite a few ‘in flight’ adjustments to the work with regards to expanding some of the shapes and breathing space between them in the interests of balance.

Watch the work unfold which hopefully will now be at a steady rate in line to meet a completion deadline of the middle of November 2018.
