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.

Ian Middleton Opens his Scottish House for Holiday Let

Ian Middleton Opens his Scottish House for Holiday Let

Ian and Jayne have now decided to use their Scottish home in Dumfries and Galloway for some periods of the year for holiday let and are showcasing a collection of oil paintings reproducing the work of the Glasgow Boys who were closely associated with the area at the turn of the century.

Most of the paintings have previously been included in museum grade quality exhibitions but now can be seen in a home environment which make for a stunning presentation.

Enquiries for letting the villa property named ‘Somerville’ should be directed to Discover Scotland : / telephone 01556 504030 and it is worth noting that free golf for up to four people is provided each day for the duration of the stay. The links course at Colvend is one of the best courses in the area and so for art loving golfers it is an absolute must!
