dc.descriptionThis interview forms part of the Kirkcudbright Artists Remembered project. This project was active during the refurbishment of the Kirkcudbright Town hall into the Kirkcudbright Galleries centre and was undertaken as a partnership between the Kirkcudbright Harbour Cottage Trust and the EERC. In this interview, Marion Devlin (age 66) who was born in Stranraer talks about her life and especially her marriage to Ian Devlin and Ian's interest in history, his art collection and his recollections of growing up in Kirkcudbright. This includes memories of Charles Oppenheimer, Miles Johnston and Jessie M King. Marion particularly talks about Ian's experience of sitting for John Halliday's painting, the Deacon Govenor. This large painting portrays Ian as the deacon govenor of The Haill Six Incorporated Trades of Kirkcudbright which Ian had a strong interest in. Marion explained that Ian's interest in history had led him to secure lottery funding to commission robes representing the trades. These costumes continue to be used in civic and community events. Ian's love of history and research also resulted in several local history publications. Marion also recalls the time when Ian was sitting for the portrait and discusses the various motifs used in the painting. He was very pleased with the painting and Marion said she was delighted the painting now belonged to the town.
