(Englewood, New Jersey-May 30, 2019) Bergen County resident Ellen Reinkraut will display her paintings in the Sandy Bennett Art Gallery in bergenPAC during June with a reception on Tuesday, June 11 from 7-9 p.m.
Reinkraut is an accomplished artist who has exhibited her work in juried shows internationally and had numerous solo exhibitions. Her artwork is recognized and included in permanent collections of museums, galleries and private collections. In addition to receiving numerous awards and recognition, she has been exhibited with other notable artists like Judy Chicago, Mary Cassatt and Miriam Shapiro.
“My paintings focus on the layering of symbols, brush work and color. The images are expressive, deeply personal and have a loose improvisational spirit,” Reinkraut says. “My art invites multiple interpretations. I am energized by both the subject and the painting process. My goal is to promote well-being to the viewer through my art.”
Reinkraut received a BFA in art education at University of Cincinnati and studied at the Art Students League in New York City, as well as with professional artists Bruce Dorfman, Norman Lewis and Miriam Beerman. She is a member of the National Association of Women Artists, the Society of Layerists in Multi Media and Studio Montclair. She has been listed in Who’s Who In American Art since 2007.
