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.

Yorkshire Dales Painting

The Dales painting has now finally been completed in all it’s colourful glory and an extraordinary limited edition print has been reproduced. This is probably Ian’s most demanding and iconic piece of work to date. It is a serious representation of his unique genre of Rubistic Expressionism.

The original drawing only differs slightly from this finished oil painted version.

The print has today been released at £180 with a maximum of only 450 on offer. The work comes with a full explanatory leaflet covering all the landmarks and icons used.

The standard size of each print is 24”x 20” and is prepared on fine art paper using the latest Giclee printing technology. Other sizes and indeed options to purchase a glazed and varnished canvas are available upon request. A 48” framed canvas version is available for viewing at the Somerville Gallery.
