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.

Polar Bears 3

Polar Bears 3

The 20”x20” Polar Bears 3 painting was completed this month. It is executed in oils on block canvas and is the third release in the Polar Bears series. This version deals more with individual family activity within the group and the abstract compartments are contained with dark lines in order to pronounce the hard edges of the containing ice.

This original oil work is sold. 50 limited edition prints are planned for immediate release through Somerville Arts.
