This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Bruce St. Clair (1945)

A well-known Canadian painter, draftsman, printmaker and educator, Bruce St. Clair (AKA: Herbert Bruce St. Clair) was born in Galt, Ontario and currently lives in Thomasburg, Ontario. (1)

His mediums include oils, watercolors and lithography*. His subjects include portraits, landscapes, interiors, still life, figures, animals, farm life, boats, shorelines, religion, spirituality, genre* and social commentary. His best known style is Realism*.

His formal art education includes studies at the Ontario College of Art (now the Ontario College of Art and Design University) from 1964 to 1967. However, he is considered largely self-taught, and he notes the works of Andrew Wyeth as being of great influence to his art. St. Clair has taught frequently since 1987, he's also been an artist-in-residence at Canadore College, North Bay, Ontario and at the McDonald Stewart Art Centre (University of Guelph), Guelph, Ontario.

He had his first solo exhibition at Aggregation Gallery [now Wynick/Tuck Gallery], Toronto in 1969. Since then his works have been widely exhibited across Canada in solo and group exhibitions at major public venues such as the Confederation Centre Art Gallery & Museum, Charlottetown, P.E.I.;  New Brunswick Museum, Saint John; Art Gallery of Brant, Branford, Ontario [now Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant]; Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, Kitchener, Ontario; Laurentian University, Sudbury, Ontario; Museum London, Ontario; Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery, Saskatchewan; Mackenzie Art Gallery, Regina, Saskatchewan; and Glenbow Museum, Calgary, Alberta.

According to the Canadian Heritage Information Network* his works are in the permanent collections of the Confederation Centre Art Gallery & Museum (Charlottetown, P.E.I.), Mendel Art Gallery (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan), and the Tom Thomson Memorial Art Gallery (Owen Sound, Ontario).
