 Alexander Robb: 50 Years of Painting at Gracefield Arts Centre, Dumfries comprises over 100 still lifes, portraits and landscapes from home and abroad in a combined retrospective and selection of new works in oil, pastel and printmaking. Many of the works have been borrowed-back from collectors to show the scope of Robb’s long painting and teaching career.

Born in Kirkwall, Orkney, in 1950, Alexander studied at Glasgow School of Art, and taught art in Stirling. Moving to Dumfriesshire in 1978, he worked as a Primary School Art Specialist, and since 2007, after teaching part-time, he concentrates fully on painting, and has been widely exhibited.

Also showing is Immerse: Paintings by Minette Bell Macdonald (until 30th Sept), a new body of work featuring landscapes and equine subjects.
