Artist description:

Archie Sutter Watt (1915-2005)

Archie Sutter Watt was born in Edinburgh in 1915, he attended Lauder Technical College and became a freelance draftsman. He enlisted in the army in 1939 and on demobilisation in 1946 entered Edinburgh College of Art. Archie began teaching at Dalbeattie High School in 1950 and established art departments at Cargenbridge School and at Dalry High School. The Galloway landscape offered a varied subject matter and the chance to depict its unique light, colour and vibrancy. Kirkgunzeon and the Solway coast village of Carsethorn have been recurring themes in the artist’s work While Archie’s work followed the trend towards abstraction it was always firmly rooted in the view before him. He became a member of the Society of Scottish Artists in 1952 and a member of the Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour in 1966. His achievements were recognised with a major retrospective exhibition at Gracefield Arts Centre, Dumfries in 2000.
