Cincinnati treasure Dick Waller is starting his third career at age 86 with the opening of his own art studio – Dick Waller’s Art Place - on West Court Street in downtown. Dick has teamed up with local gallery owner Sylvia Rombus and they are in our studio to talk about this new venture with Anne Arenstein.
Dick Waller is a familiar face and name around the Cincinnati music community. He was the principal clarinetist for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra for many years, and during that time, he founded the Linton Chamber Music Series. 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 Music at an Exhibition, showcasing over 100 of his works, at theClifton Cultural Arts Center. 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.
