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.

Polar Bears 3

Oils on Canvas 20”x20”

The painting was completed in January 2020. It is executed in oils on canvas and is the third release in the Polar Bears series. This version deals more with individual family activity within the group and the abstract compartments are contained with dark lines in order to pronounce the hard edges of the containing ice. This original oil work is sold.

Limited edition prints signed, authenticated and registered prints are available, on fine art paper, prepared using the high quality and lasting process of Giclee technology. These are available directly from Somerville Arts at £180 each and only 50 have been authorised for issue.
