Archie Sutter Watt RSW one of Dumfries and Galloway's best-loved artists died aged 90 in April 2005.

Known to many for his Galloway landscapes and still-life paintings Archie lived and worked at his studio in Kirkgunzeon near Dalbeattie for over 55 years.

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.

A stalwart of the local community he was instrumental in establishing the Annual Arts Festival and Stewartry Art Society and despite his heavy teaching workload he continued to create his own works exhibiting both locally and around the country. He was made full member of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolour RSW in 1966.

In early 2005 he was still working on a series of new graphic works.
