A young Clarence Bolton arrived in Woodstock in 1917 for a brief visit and stayed for the next 45 years. Once he came to Woodstock, he began to study painting with John Carlson. Later moved on to explore printmaking and became an accomplished lithographer, exhibiting his work all over the country. His love of Overlook Mountain and the surrounding fields and streams became the inspiration for his work. Along the way, Bolt became an integral part of the Woodstock community. Among his many interesting ventures he ran a commercial printing business, established The Nook (which later became the Café Espresso), and wrote and published The Clatter. He met and married Louise Cashdollar and was welcomed into her large, extended family.
The exhibit, features a large selection of his paintings and lithographs from the Historical Society archives, as well as numerous photographs of Clarence Bolton and his life in Woodstock.
