March 3rd - 24th    James Macaulay - Solway and Beyond

‘Solway and Beyond’ is an exhibition of recent oil paintings by James Macaulay.
Ottersburn Gallery is proud to host this solo exhibition from James Macaulay.
James Macaulay is an artist of many years experience painting mainly Scottish landscape and seascape. His long career in education has done much to inform his work and he has lived, worked and painted in highly individual localities from the North to the South of Scotland. 

Talking about the forthcoming exhibition, local artist, printmaker and publisher Hugh Bryden
commented, “Jim Macaulay is a Galloway painter I respect greatly. His craftsmanship is superb, and
he is meticulous throughout his work, right from priming canvas onwards. He is a man who knows
and understands paint like few others, and he uses that skill to paint atmosphere – through
evocative landscape and remarkable imagery.”

Visitors to the exhibition can expect to see familiar areas of the Solway coast, as well as other
Scottish shorelines. This is James Macaulay’s first exhibition in several years.
