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.

New Opening Times of the Gallery

With immediate effect we are changing the opening times to Thursday 10.00am to 4.00pm, Friday the same and Saturday 10.00am to 3.30pm.

In the short term Ian will be painting live each day which will give customers the chance to engage directly with the artist.

Recent experience has shown us that all visitors support this concept and we feel this is the way forward. The gallery will be opened at other times on a private viewing appointment basis arranged by telephoning Ian direct on 01943 864349.
