About Tom & Dick Van Arsdale, Artists
About 2012, Former 3x NBA All-Stars Dick and Tom Van Arsdale, at the ripe old age of 69, retired from the “real business world.” After over 50 years in the world of basketball and real estate, it was decided to avoid all aspects of stress if possible and find another passion.
Music, literature, and art were all very exciting to us. However, we couldn’t play a musical instrument, we couldn’t sing according to our wives, but we could draw. And so, with pens, pencils, brushes, and oils, we embarked on the trail of creating art pieces that we enjoyed. The torch had been lit, and we were off to the races. Neither of us had much formal training, but our naiveté made us happy.
So with much joy and happiness, we opened Van Arsdale Art on May 1, 2018.
Here we are, and we invite all of you to stop by and see what we are creating. We love to talk about the old days, and what lies ahead. Look around our studio. If you like what you see, that would please us very much. If our art doesn’t touch your fancy, just “shoot the breeze.”
