Art Gallery of Northumberland, Victoria Hall, 3rd floor

“We are quite possibly living in the twilight of the natural world as we have known it. In that regard, my work is an act of preservation. To preserve the natural world is to preserve a language of the wind and shifting light, of stillness, silence and space.” — Ron Bolt

Ron Bolt was born in Toronto in 1938. He graduated as a gold medallist from Northern Technical School and furthered his art studies through courses at the Ontario College of Art and Ryerson Polytechnic. He was the 27th President of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, awarded the Canada 125 Medal in 1992, the Queen’s Jubilee Medal in 2002, and the RCA’s Centennial Medallion in 2005.

His work has been shown in over a hundred and twenty solo and group exhibitions.

“The purpose of art is not the release of a momentary ejection of adrenaline but rather the gradual, lifelong construction of a state of wonder and serenity.” – Glenn Gould
