Waldo Gallery was founded in 1992 by Ronald Wilson and his daughter (Alexandra) joined the gallery as Managing Director after her graduation from Bryn Mawr College in Art History, and certification from Sotheby's Art Institute in London, England.
After completing his undergraduate education at Howard University, and his graduate education at Southeastern University, he was encouraged by the former curator and director of the Barnett-Aden Collection, the late Adolphus Ealey, to continue his studies and to create works of art himself. Since then he has had great success in the art field, is a published artist and has been featured in art exhibitions across the Washington, DC area. Ronald has been recognized in the Washington Post as a featured artist in the Art of Interpretation exhibition sponsored by his alma mater Howard University and Lexus of Bethesda Maryland, as well as exhibitions at the Washington Gas Corp, Pepco Holdings, Inc. and Central Union Mission's Annual Fundraiser for the homeless.
After 30 plus years of attending lectures, exhibitions and studying the history of art, Waldo has become well versed in the fine arts field. A virtuoso in creativity that aims to lift the viewer to a higher dimension, and to help facilitate the world's creative, emotional and social growth. Without art, life has no soul.

As I composed this piece all that kept coming to my mind is "When will we return to normal?" Thus, the composition was named using an imperative phrase with a the longing to "Return To Normal."
On a college tour for our daughter in 2014 to explore possible Law Schools for her to attend, we visited Florida Intern'l Univ. (FIU) that has a museum that was created through the philanthropy of Patricia & Phillip Frost. The Frost Museum is one of the best I've seen on a college campus. In fact, FIU is one of the most beautiful campuses I've ever visited thanks to their alumni Adam Stewart whose father founded Sandals Resorts.
When I visited "Falling Water" which is a 1930s home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, I was completely amazed by the vision Mr. Wright must have had as an architect. To build a home into a rock on top of a "water fall" is as daring as it gets. Pure creative genius without question. It inspired me to pay homage to one of the world's greatest artisans.
