Saskatchewan NAC Auction House Biography and Notes
Robert Aller was born in Dauphin Manitoba. The youngest of nineteen children Aller grew up on a farm and early in life developed a love of nature. At the age of twenty, Aller studied at the Vancouver School of Art, where he won a scholarship. He travelled to Montreal, and studied for five years with Arthur Lismer at McGill University. Aller continued to accompany Lismer on his sketching trips to the West Coast after leaving the school. Aller first began working with First Nations communities in 1958. More an artistic guide than a teacher, Aller provided creative materials and encouraged his students to follow their intuition. Throughout the years, Aller received invitations to visit native settlements in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia.

Foot note : From Art Exhibition "There is Truth Here "
Walsh is the Vancouver museum’s curator for There is Truth Here. The collection of artwork in the exhibit marks a culmination of work stemming from her research that began almost 20 years ago.

It was in 2000 that Walsh first began to research the history of what at the time was believed to be a small collection of drawings created at the Inkameep Indian Day School, located on the Osoyoos Indian Reserve, in the late 1930s to early 1940s.

Two other featured collections in There is Truth Here began in the classroom of Robert Aller, who served as a volunteer art teacher at Mackay Residential School and taught extracurricular art classes at Alberni Residential School. In 2008, Aller’s family donated artwork to the University of Victoria, which represented pieces that have been returned to residential school survivors or their families.
