Andrew Binnie and his daughter Carol are teaming up again with an exhibition of paintings in Kelso, their home town, this month.

Andrew trained at the Glasgow School of Art and came to the region in 1960, teaching at a number of schools before becoming principal teacher of art at Earlston High. He is now retired.

He has exhibited in all the major Scottish exhibitions. His work is in many prominent collections, including a Border landscape bought by the Duke of Edinburgh, which hangs in the royal apartments in Holyroodhouse.

Carol Binnie was educated at Kelso High, Edinburgh College of Art and Edinburgh University, where she obtained an honours degree in fine art. She is principal teacher of art at Edinburgh’s Royal High School.

Her speciality is watercolour, in particular finely detailed still lives and floral studies. She has exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy and the Scottish Society of Watercolour Painters.

The exhibition – entitled Brushstrokes – is in Kelso Town House from Wednesday until Saturday, August 18, admission free.
