Discover one of Cincinnati’s Emerging Artists
Sculptor and visual artist Paul Kroner will present his first home-city solo show at Dick Waller’s ArtPlace, opening on Thursday, February 20 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm, featuring the greater Cincinnati Youth Jazz Quartet from the School for the Creative and Performing Arts. The show runs through April 20, 2020.
Located at 130 West Court Street, downtown Cincinnati, the gallery show will feature Kroner’s bronzes, paintings, prints and animations, including new additions to his ongoing series of “Twoods”.
“We’re thrilled to show Paul’s work at the ArtPlace,” said Dick Waller. “We set a high priority on featuring regional artists. It’s an honor for us to have Paul in the gallery for his first show back in his home-town.”

“Dick’s gallery is a wonderful space, and I’m excited about the opportunity to show work that reflects how I’ve seen the world so far,” Paul said. “I feel so lucky and grateful to be able to do that in my hometown, where I’ve felt so welcomed as an artist in the two years since moving back here.”
Kroner’s work has been well-received over the years. His recent “Twood” series in particular, a number of which have appeared in multiple shows and galleries in New England and the Midwest, is gaining momentum among art-smart audiences and are in private collections nationally.
Part of the well-known local Kroner Dry Cleaners family, Paul moved back to Cincinnati in 2017 after living in the Boston area for 37 years. He is a ’77 graduate of LaSalle High School, and an ’82 graduate of the Design, Art, Architectural and Planning (DAAP) program at the University of Cincinnati.
