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.

National Trust Properties in Yorkshire

Ian has completed a painting featuring all Yorkshire based National Trust properties in response to their interest in marketing a bespoke Yorkshire Revisited print through all their Yorkshire properties. This would include other merchandise such as cards and mats etc and other relative prints.

The idea is to geographically integrate the properties into the ‘Yorkshire Revisted’ work, the full painting for which will be shortly completed by Ian and called ‘Trust in Yorkshire’

The painting covering the various properties is shown here.
