The new London Gold Gallery is presenting the artwork of award winning husband and wife, Dale and Nancy Reinker, beginning on February 1, 2018. Their artwork showcases a dynamic, curated selection of work that includes the abstracted and finite botanical drawings by Nancy and a selection of realistic paintings and sculpture of New York City by Dale. This unique pairing of very different work offers the viewer an exciting collection that fosters the energy and dynamic of nature and man-made constructions.
Dale’s oil and acrylic paintings are depictions of actual specific areas of New York City and they are complimented by his mixed media/wood cityscape sculptures. Nancy, quite differently, uses ink and mixed media drawings to delicately and abstractly recreates the natural world. The couple’s last exhibit here in the Phoenix area was in March 2016 with a showing at the Eric Fischl Gallery at Phoenix College titled, “Nancy and Dale Reinker: People and Places”. Having become a staple of the Arizona art community for the last 15 years, the Reinker’s divide their time, their talents and exhibitions between the east coast of Connecticut and here in Phoenix.
Nancy studied art at Kent State University, The Cleveland Art Institute, and the Silvermine School of Art, in numerous workshops at The Center for Contemporary Printmaking and Independent Study and Critique with Robert Reed at Yale University. Her abstract creations have been exhibited at the Eric Fischl Gallery at Phoenix College, The Udinotti Museum of Figurative Art, as well as numerous national and international venues from New York to Japan and her work is a part of many private and permanent collections. The New York Times, Westport News, The Stamford Advocate and other east coast publications have featured her work over several years highlighting many exhibitions.
Upon finishing his time in the Armed Services where he designed training aids, Dale studied art at Kent State University and The Cleveland Art Institute where his concentration was specifically on cityscapes and landscapes in oil, acrylic and watercolor. His award winning portrayal of many parts of the U.S. has been exhibited at The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Silvermine Art Center, The Stamford Museum and Nature, The Westport Art Center, The Ridgefield Guild of the Arts and the Narthex Gallery. His work has also been featured in The New York Times, The Westport News and Stamford Advocate.
