We open the year with a selection of landscapes by Kirkcudbright artist Stewart Morrison.
Stewart introduces his show below:
East, west, hame is best’. Stewart Morrison
Saturday 13th - Saturday 27th January Ottersburn Gallery
Welcome to my exhibition which the likes of Rabbie Burns might have called ‘East, West, hame is best’.
The river Nith is one of my favourite places to paint and especially the area around Devorgilla Bridge. Each day is different. I don’t really have a favourite time of year for painting: there is just as much to see in the depths of winter as on a summer’s day and with each season passing, I look forward to the next.
I paint all over Scotland and to quote John Muir “Your favourite place is where you are at the moment”.
I hope you enjoy the exhibition which runs until Saturday 27th of January 2018. During this period I will be out and about around Devorgilla Bridge painting so feel free to say hi if you see me. To finish off I feel I should end with a quote from Rabbie Burns:
“The Thames flows to the sea but the Nith flows sweeter for me.
My work is about finding a balance between opposites such as left and right, east and west, north and south, painting and sculpture, summer and winter, real and abstract, success and failure.
I am based in Kirkcudbright but lived in Dumfries for fifteen years and was born in Stranraer.
