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.

Jungle Chaos

4 Jungle Chaos

The original painting in oils on canvas was completed in 2011 and is fun attempt to introduce well known jungle characters and animals into a loose abstract setting.

A large number of animals and landscape extracts are often semi concealed by the artist after having been colourfully woven into the painting. Ian’s aim is to provide both young and older viewers with a voyage of discovery in identifying these images.

There are a small number of limited edition prints available from the original 350 issue which are presented with a certificate of authenticity, direct from Somerville Arts at £180 each.
