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.

Ilkley Drawing

The Ilkley limited print drawing has today been released at £140 with a maximum of only 95 on offer. The work by Ian comes with a full explanatory leaflet covering all the landmarks and icons used.

The standard size of each print is 17×14 inches and is prepared on fine art paper using Giclee printing technology.

The drawing is released ahead of the painting itself which will likely be available around summer 2020. The painting may not correspond exactly to the current format of the drawing and as such the latter becomes very collectable for those enthusiasts of Ian’s unique genre of art.
