ABOUT

 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.

After Waldo completed the previous composition in his "Falling Waters" series and published it, he was approached by an International Apparel Co. to partner with him. These are some samples of the different type of clothing, accessories and pillow design that they came up with. We're still in negotiation and the gallery will be making a formal announcement once the product line is launched.

Taylor Collection 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.
