His artwork is widely collected in both public and private collections, and has been exhibited here on Long Island, as well as New York City, Connecticut, and Florida. Mr. Reina will sit down with Art Donovan, an artist/designer/author who is also the Fine Arts Columnist for the Southampton Press, for a candid conversation about the new direction in Reina’s recent work, his influences, mentors, and lessons learned over the past twenty years. The talk will also touch on Reina’s background, which is varied and unique, and has influenced his work and art career. A Q & A will follow the talk.
