Exhibition puts Galloway in the frame

“Nowhere to be but here” is the title of a new photographic exhibition by Stewart Baillie, from April 10-27 at the Tolbooth Art Centre in Kirkcudbright.

Through his photographs, Stewart shares moments and feelings captured during the past year, often with a twist revealing a well-kent scene in a new light, some with more to them than appears at first glance.

Stewart’s eye for reflections – a major theme in his photographic work – creates a multi-dimensional effect.

The photographs are all taken in the Dumfries and Galloway region, mainly around Kirkcudbright.

Born in 1960 in Kirkcudbright, Stewart lives and works in his home town as a driving instructor. Through his profession, he developed a keen sense of observation which has extended to his passion for photography.

Encouraged by public interest in a modest selection of photos displayed during the Kirkcudbright Arts and Crafts Trail in 2010, Stewart started to put together a collection of his work and has since exhibited annually.

The Tolbooth opens daily from 11am to 4pm and there is free admission.
