ARCHIE SUTTER WATT (1915 – 2005) was one of Dumfries and Galloway’s best-loved artists, known for his landscape and still life paintings. After service in the Second World War and then studies at the Glasgow and Edinburgh School of Art‚ Archie came to Dumfries and Galloway to take up a teaching post in schools‚ thinking it would be a pleasant short stay for himself and his wife Morag. He often remarked that he had never intended to remain in Galloway but somehow the place just “got into his blood” and the couple found themselves happy to make it their home.
