He was the principal clarinetist for the <strong>Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra</strong> for many years, and during that time, he founded the <a href="http://lintonmusic.org/"><strong>Linton Chamber Music Series</strong></a>. But what many did not know was that, starting in 1974, he began painting as a stress reliever from his work with the symphony. Now, in retirement, he’s decided to begin exhibiting his paintings. Sunday afternoon will be the opening of <a href="http://local.cincinnati.com/share/story/202055"><strong>Music at an Exhibition</strong></a>, showcasing over 100 of his works, at the<a href="http://www.cliftonculturalarts.org/"> <strong>Clifton Cultural Arts Center</strong></a>. Dick Waller is in our studio with Mark Perzel to talk about his passion for painting and why he is now ready to share them with the rest of the community.</p><p></p><p> Fri, 15 Mar 2013 05:31:20 +0000 Mark Perzel 10253 at http://wvxu.org Musician and Artist, Dick Waller Artist Alice Pixley Young http://wvxu.org/post/artist-alice-pixley-young <p>Jane Durrell talks with local artist and visual arts teacher at the <strong>School for Creative and Performing Arts</strong>, <a href="http://www.pixleyart.com/"><strong>Alice Pixley Young</strong></a>.
