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.

Prime Minister views Ian Middleton’s art

David Cameron recently visited the Ring O’Bells at Thornton, Bradford when he found time to both eat lunch and view the current art exhibition situated within the restaurant. Clearly it brought the concept of the ‘art of dining’ to new levels. Ian has a fluid arrangement with the owners, Clive and Ann Preston whereby an ever changing exhibition features his work for preview purposes or viewing prior to releasing it to clients.
