March 3rd - 27th James Macaulay
James Macaulay ‘Solway and Beyond’
At Ottersburn Gallery, Dumfries, 3rd – 24th March 2018.
‘Solway and Beyond’ is an exhibition of recent oil paintings by James Macaulay.
Ottersburn Gallery, Dumfries, is proud to host this solo exhibition from James Macauley.
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 tothe South of Scotland.
Having settled in Dumfries twenty three years ago, he has been able to work full time as an artist . This has done much to broaden and deepen his technique and range of expression.
James says: “Image and atmosphere go hand in hand and I have tried to maintain the simplicity of the former with the subtleties of the latter.”
At present he is engrossed in the interface of sea and land with both exhibiting the range and variety readily found in the coasts around our land. The Solway and the Minches provide just those ideal contrasts but these are by no means exclusive locations. Pristine blue water and estuary mud flats provide interest in equal measure.
All works in this exhibition are in oils.
The exhibition opens on Saturday 3rd March 2018 and runs till Saturday 24th March.
For the year ahead are in the planning and will be posted here and in our Social feeds. So please keep a look out for more news.
