On Friday, October 30, The Town of Kiawah Island Arts Council hosted a painting demonstration at the Sandcastle led by nationally known artist Rick Reinert. Reinert showcased his use of color, light, and shadow in a still life piece which was then sold in silent auction. Reinert donated the proceeds to support art programs in area high schools.

Rick Reinert, represented by the Wells Gallery, has won many top awards for his paintings which are displayed in private and corporate collections in 48 states, as well as Europe, Canada, South America and Asia. In 2009, he was chosen as a featured artist in the Gadsden (AL) Museum of Art’s Southeastern Plein Air Festival and was featured in for the third time in American Art Collector magazine.
