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.
This website is an illustrated guide to professional artists past and present who were born, work, or have made their home, in what is now known as the Bradford Metropolitan District – including David Hockney. The aim is to collate information about local artists for the benefit of art lovers and supporters in the district and elsewhere.
The people included on the site are or have been professional artists, making visual art forms the main focus of their work.
During the middle of next year there will be a two months visual art exhibition at Centenary Square Bradford Gallery where six artists with three works each are expected screened on a loop basis throughout the day. Ian will be included with his works, Yorkshire, Cry From The Edge and 1812. The theme of the Exhibition is Abstract Expressionism.
