Richard L. Cammack
A dance major graduate of Butler University, Richard Cammack began his artistic career in the field of classical ballet.
As a dancer, Richard performed internationally with the world-renowned companies American Ballet Theatre and San Francisco Ballet before taking on the role of director of the San Francisco Ballet School. In 1978, Richard moved to the East Bay and became the owner and director of the Contra Costa Ballet Centre in Walnut Creek where he continues to work with a faculty of international stature in serving over 450 students.
Richard has always had a passion for the visual and performing arts and finds dancing and painting a source of great joy and inspiration. The focus of his work is primarily on color and abstract expressionism, and it is often said that there is a strong sense of movement and rhythm in his work which he believes can be attributed to his experience as both a dancer and percussionist.
Richard Cammack’s paintings are featured at several art galleries, shows and private residences in the bay area.
