Visit Reinert Fine Art and see new works by Rick Reinert. Owned by contemporary impressionist painter Rick Reinert, and his wife Ann, Reinert Fine Art showcases many classical painters as well as several well known sculptors in its new outdoor sculpture garden gallery.
Reinert himself is renowned for his bold, emotionally charged paintings using thick brushstrokes and confident use of color. Lately, Reinert is enjoying the inspiration found in the surroundings of his second gallery in Blowing Rock, North Carolina, which had its official Grand Opening - December, 2015. The artist continues to paint eight to 10 hours a day, 7 days each week; now sharing the colors and landscape of the mountains in addition to his widely popular lowcountry scenes of South Carolina.
Pictured here is his painting, "Afternoon Sun, Kiawah" , oil on linen 48"H x 36"W.
Charleston is blessed with a significant number of artists, musicians, chefs and creatives that shape the culture and experience our city and make it like no other. I’ve always felt that artists create because they must. More than a choice, it’s a drive and the obedience of it. Rick Reinert paints every single day from dawn to dusk and has a significant following to collect what he is compelled to create. He also vets and invites other artists to share his space at 179 King Street. Sharing is another element of the creative process.
Goldsmith Michael Corneau is driven by colored stones. He has been fascinated with them since his work with Richard W. Wise, renowned goldsmith and gemologist, author of The French Blue and Secrets Of The Gem Trade, The Connoisseur's Guide To Precious Gemstones. When Corneau speaks of primary hue, secondary hue, tone, saturation etc. it is with respect. “What is the potential for the best color for this breed of gemstone? Why is this better than that?” He loves the science of it. “Why is most of your jewelry diamonds? Diamonds are a safe bet. Without having someone to guide and educate about other options, they’re a safe bet. But women are more adventurous, and they love the colored stones.”
