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.

Exhibition of Self Taught Professional Artists

This exhibition to be held at Shipley Library will run for two weeks from Saturday 26th May 2018 and will feature half a dozen of prints of Ian’s work.

These will all be for sale and half way through on 2nd June 2018 the exhibiting artists will be on hand to meet the public. Due to holiday commitments Ian cannot be there but Pat Hargreaves will be representing us.

A considerable amount of local advertising is being generated by the efforts of organiser Colin Neville and posters as seen here will be seen throughout the area.
