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.

Leeds 17th Art Exhibition

The Exhibition in support of St Gemma hospice opened its doors at 10.00am this morning.

900 Works were on display and most were for sale. Ian Middleton had three original pieces and three limited edition prints in the Exhibition which was held at the Leeds Grammar School. He made a positive start to the four day event by selling one of the framed prints (Cry From The Edge) within the first hour.

The Exhibition itself looks very well supported with at least two hundred paying the £3 admission fee in that first hour.

Well worth a vis
