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 painting, completed in 2009, frames local horses corralled in the fields overlooking Auchencairn Bay in South West Scotland which is the view from the artist’s home in that part of the world.
Rabbits are woven in and concealed within the fields immediately behind the horses. This highlights the freedom enjoyed by wild life as they blend into the environment in which they live.
150 signed and authenticated limited edition prints of the work were originally released for purchase, some of which are still available at £180 directly from Somerville Arts or selected art retailers.
Ian Middleton’s studio can be found at Wharfe Brow, Manor Park, Burley in Wharfedale, West Yorkshire LS29 7HJEnquire about this piece
