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 Revisited

Since first painting Yorkshire, Ian has received numerous requests to add icons which were not included in the original painting. In addition to this, he has been asked to reproduce it in more shaded blue tones away from the greens so as to be more decoratively compatible in some homes and offices.

During 2017 a rework of the painting was undertaken to meet these requests and a limited edition issue figure of 450 was agreed. The colour move is significant, as can be seen when you compare the two works and with the additional icons it makes for an attractive alternative choice.
