Archie Sutter Watt

Archie Sutter Watt was born in Edinburgh in 1915 and brought up there and in Fife. 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, where there was a keen group of students anxious to make up for lost time under the guidance of talented teachers such as Adam Bruce Thomson, Donald Moodie and William Gillies.

At the end of his post - graduate year at Moray House Teacher Training College in 1950, Archie saw a job in Dalbeattie posted on the College notice board. Not knowing Galloway, he decided to try the area for a couple of years, little thinking that this would become a stay of over 50 years.

Archie began teaching at Dalbeattie High School in 1950. Dalbeattie was the home of John Maxwell, who with Willie Gillies had taught and influenced Archie at College. Over the years Archie developed a firm friendship with Maxwell and with Gillies who was a frequent visitor to Dalbeattie till Johnnie Maxwell’s untimely death in 1962. During his teaching career in Galloway Archie established art departments at Cargenbridge School and at Dalry High School and was primary schools advisor for the Stewartry.


As time went by Archie developed his deep interest in the Galloway landscape and his work proved popular with the buying public. The area round his home at Kirkgunzeon, Dalbeattie and the Solway coast offered varied subject matter and the chance to depict its unique light, colour and vibrancy. The landscape about 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, like Maxwell’s, 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.

Over the years Archie became increasingly involved in the artistic life of Dumfries and Galloway. In 1969 he established the Stewartry Art Society with his friend John Davey. In 1976 following his retirement from reaching in schools, he began to give classes from his studio in Kirkgunzeon. In 1980 he restarted the Kirkcudbright summer schools and in the same year became involved in the establishment of the Dumfries and Galloway Arts Festival with its celebrated exhibition in his own studio.

To the end of his life Archie Sutter Watt was closely involved in the artistic life of Dumfries and Galloway, developing new art techniques over the years. His achievement was recognised with a major retrospective exhibition at Gracefield Arts Centre, Dumfries in 2000 and there have been memorial exhibitions since his death in 2005.
