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.

The Art Works Otley Open New Gallery

After months of renovation and refurbishment The Art Works have moved into their new workspace and gallery, a beautiful grade II listed building in Courthouse Street.

The gallery is featuring the original ‘Yorkshire’ painting by Ian which on the opening party night received considerable interest, especially from Olympic gold medalists the Brownlee bothers who officially opened the premises. Other works by Ian are on display.
