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.

Trust in Yorkshire

Ian has completed the Yorkshire Revisited adaptation to accommodate the inclusion of twelve National Trust properties in the region. We invite any interested parties to view the new painting now ahead of any print release. All twelve chosen properties blend seamlessly into the existing framework and limited edition prints on fine art paper, canvas or acrylic will be available for eventual purchase. There will be greeting cards and coasters available.

At present the Trust properties are of course closed to the public other than some gardens which is delaying matters in our final negotiations with the organisation.
