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.

Large Canvas of Burley Painting Unveiled at Show

The oil paint has now been applied to a small section of the 4ft canvas which gave interested people at the show an exclusive preview of the work in progress.

The colour brings the painting to life and this seems to have spurred a great deal of visitors in making forward commitments to ordering prints.

The show was a great success in both numbers and organisation a tribute to both Angus and Duncan’s stalwart efforts.
