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.

Otley, Burley and Ilkley


The completion and launch of the Ilkley painting has provided Ian with the opportunity to also conclude the major tripart work of Otley, Burley and Ilkley.

Ian has been working on one major nine feet wide canvas which combines the three individual works and with a few modifications produces a seamless, large format work.

The impressive expressionist result will be available for very limited print purposes and exhibition support.

The combined and adapted paintings cover much of Lower Wharfedale. Only the Skipton and Grassington areas are not covered.

Ian has, however, finalised a one off Skipton piece which will synchronise with the tripart for anyone interested.

The Dales painting launched in 2020 embraces 16 key areas of Wharfedale, complementing total local coverage.

The new large scale format picture supports provides around 500 icons but the abstract look still dominates the composition.

A limited edition print run of 495 to cover high definition reproductions on canvas, fine art paper and acrylic glass is available. The various options will be exhibited at The Art Works in Otley.

Paper Print 30cm x 7.5cm : £180
Acrylic Glass Print 34cm x 8cm : £330
Canvas Print 34cm x 8cm : £220

Larger sizes can be requested and quotations will be provided upon request
